§ Mr. EDE
asked the Home Secretary the amount of service, expressed in man days, rendered by the Metropolitan 2229W Police Force to the companies promoting race meetings during the last complete year; and the sums paid to the receiver of the Metropolitan Police in return for such service in the same year?
§ Mr. CLYNES
The figures in question for September, 1929–30, are 9,124 man days and £16,736 lls. 4d. I should add that these figures cover 40 race meetings. The first figure includes men of all ranks, and the sums paid to the receiver include travelling expenses, subsistence allowances, etc., as well as the charges in respect of the pay, pensions, etc., of the men.
