Mr. T. MORRIS
asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider the offer of rewards for the detection of those who are setting fire to vegetation on the open spaces of the country?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
For the last 50 years it has been the settled practice—for which there are very strong reasons—not to offer rewards for information leading to the detection of unknown offenders, and I see no reason for initiating any new practice in regard to cases of the type to which my hon. Friend refers.
