§ 34. Mr. Fernyhough
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people had to pay for the medical attention they received from police doctors in London police stations on Sunday and Monday 17th and 18th September, respectively; and what was the total amount collected in fees.
§ Mr. Renton
Twenty-one persons arrested in the Metropolitan Police District on 17th September were examined by police surgeons and were subsequently ordered by the court, on conviction, to pay costs which included an element in respect of their medical examination. The corresponding figure for 18th September was six. Out of this total number of twenty-seven persons, six were involved in the anti-nuclear demonstration in Trafalgar Square.
