asked the Home Secretary whether he is in a position to make a statement with regard to any changes in the Metropolitan police organisation for dealing with clubs, gaming, and other disorderly houses; and whether such changes will involve any increase in the strength of the Criminal Investigation Department?
asked the Home Secretary whether he can state the names of the superior officers who were responsible for supervising ex-Sergeant Goddard in the performance of his duties in connection with the control of night clubs and disorderly houses?
The officers of "C" Division who were responsible, in greater or less degree and at one period or another, for the supervision of Ex-Sergeant Goddard between 1914 and his suspension from duty, included four Superintendents, six Chief Inspectors and 11 Sub-divisional Inspectors. I do not think any public interest would be served by my giving their names.
Can the right hon. Gentleman allocate to any of the officers responsible the responsibility for dismissing constables who brought charges of irregularity against Sergeant Goddard?
