1Short title.

This Act may be cited as the Metropolitan Police Act, 1887, and this Act and the Metropolitan Police Acts, 1829 to 1886, may be cited together as the Metropolitan Police Acts, 1829 to 1887.

2Extension of borrowing powers under 49 Vict. c.22 s.3.

(1)For the purposes referred to in section three of the Metropolitan Police Act, 1886, the police receiver shall have power to borrow further sums not exceeding in the aggregate three hundred thousand pounds, and that section shall have effect as if five hundred thousand pounds were therein substituted for two hundred thousand pounds.

(2)The purposes referred to in that section shall include the purchase of furniture and fittings for the said central office, but all sums borrowed for the purchase of furniture or fittings shall be repaid, with the interest thereon, within a period not exceeding-fifteen years.

(3)A lender shall not be concerned to see or inquire for what purpose any money is borrowed under the said Act as amended by this Act.

3Power to lease land not immediately required.

The police receiver may from time to time, with the approval of one of Her Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, grant leases, for such terms as the Secretary of State may approve, of land for the time being held by the police receiver and appearing to the Secretary of State to be not immediately required for the purposes for which the police receiver is authorised to hold land.

4Provision as to piece of land extending from Cannon Row.

Whereas a small piece of land, being an extension of Cannon Row, and containing sixty-three superficial yards or thereabouts, is bounded on three sides by land vested or about to be vested in the police receiver, and is believed to be vested in the Board of Works for the Westminster district, and is not required for the purposes for which, that board is authorised to hold land, but doubts have been entertained whether that board has power to transfer the said piece of land to the police receiver and to extinguish the rights (if any) of the public over the same, and it is expedient to remove those doubts; be it therefore enacted that the said board may by agreement transfer the said piece of land to the police receiver, and thereupon all public rights (if any) over the said piece of land shall be extinguished.
