POLICE AND-THE MAGIS- TRATES. A the meeting of the Standing Joint Committee of the Glamorgan Quarter Sessions, Mr. David Davies moved :— That any member of the Joint Committee may visit any police-station within the jurisdiction of the Committee. of the Committee. The Chairman ruled the resolution out of order J that Mr. Davies was led to make the Committee I decide that such visitation was legal. It wasn't competent for the committee to do so. No magistrate even had a right to visit stations in that way. They could only act as a Joint Com- mittee, but as private individuals they had no right to do anything. Alderman Griffiths asked whether superinten- dents of police had the power to refuse admission to members of the committee. The Chairman replied that if superintendents in their discretion did so, they would in all proba- bility be backed up by the committee. Mr. David Davies pointed out that the basis of of his resolution was the non-observance of the Sunday-closing Act in the Rhondda, but the Chair- man repeated that they had no power to pass such a resolution. It was resolved that no appointment to the rank i of inspector of police, beyond the present number should be made without the consent of the com- mittee, and that all the police, as far as practicable, be instructed in ambulance work.
