THE POLICE. AT A TIME when public attention is being absorbed by the conflict between the hereditary legislators on the one side and the elected legisl- lators on the other, many important contempor- ary movements are being neglected by the ubiquitous man in the street." One of these, which is of very general interest, is the effort now being made to secure a weekly rest Ci■_ y for each member of the police force. On the motion of Mr. Whiteley, Parliamentary Secretary -of the Treasury, the House of Commons on May 13th, 1908, appointed a Select Committee to inquire and report whether, having re- gard to the conditions of service in police forces in the United Kingdom, it is desirable that pro- vision should be made, by legislation or other- wise, for granting one full day off duty in seven what, if any, alterations in the conditions of service and police admiinisjt'rattion should ac- company this change; what would be the cost, and how it should be borne so as not to in- crease the charge on Imperial funds. The Select Committee's sittings extended over several months a great volume of evidence in favour of the experiment was taken; already public opinion is ripe on the subject in London; and throughout the provinces the matter is being taken up with much earnestness. So far as we are awtare, nothing has hitilierito,bee-i done in North Wales and we consider that the time has arrived when the Standing Joint Police Com- mittees of Flintshire, Denbighshire, Carnarvon- shire, Merionethshire, and Anglesey-,the ooun. ties served by the Weekly News" should give the matter their serious consideration. Not only the authorities, but the ratepayers generally, should make their views known on. this import- ant subject; and we shall be happy to throw open our columns to a discussion on the point. WTe are well aware that there is a financial side to this question; but there are also the moral and religious aspects of the matter, which cannot be ignored.
