asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether it is intended by the authorities to adopt, at the large number of Metropolitan Police Stations, a mode of lighting the cells similar to that successfully carried out in the six City stations of London?

in reply, said, that for some months past arrangements had been in progress for lighting 38 cells in the interior district of the Metropolitan police district and 19 in the outer district, by the same mode as that adopted in the City police stations. The change would be extended to the stations in course of erection.
