HC Deb 27 July 1933 vol 280 cc2791-2W

asked the Home Secretary whether he is able now to state the result of the inquiry into the circumstances in which the branch board of the Police Federation, Stoke-on-Trent, resigned; and whether he has received a report from the inspector of constabulary concerning the certificate of efficiency in respect of this force?


I have had inquiry made into this matter, and am informed that four constables resigned from the branch board following disciplinary proceedings arising out of charges improperly made against a chief inspector in a, resolution submitted by the board to the watch committee, for which the constables concerned apologised to the chief inspector. Another election was held on 16th June, and the board is now functioning normally. His Majesty's Inspector of Constabulary inspected the force on 19th June, but no complaint was then made to him by the men. I have no reason to think that he will not report the force as efficient in due course.
