HC Deb 22 July 1929 vol 230 c928W

asked the Home Secretary, with regard to the inspector of the public carriage branch inspecting staff, Metropolitan Police, who has been suspended from duty and dealt with by a disciplinary board, what was the nature of the offence and what was the punishment; and whether other officers in the public carriage branch have been informed of the facts?


The inspector in question was dealt with by a disciplinary board who found him guilty of the following offence, for which he was severely reprimanded: Corrupt practice, that is, accepting as a gratuity or present, without the sanction of the Commissioner, a Bank of England Note, value 10s. No official notification of the case was issued to the public carriage branch, but the officers of that branch are no doubt aware of the facts.
