General Order No. 98 6th March 1895 Medical Examination of Prisoners arrested on a charge of committing an unnatural Rape. Whenever a prisoner is in custody on a charge of committing an unnatural offence or any of the felonies under the Criminal Law Amendment Act 1885, and an case of above nature in which a medical examination seem likely to furnish evidence as to the prisoners guilt or innocence, but not charges of misdemeanour of an outrage on decency mentioned in the 11th Section of that Act, and the misdemeanour under Sections 4 & 5 of that Act (the attempt) such prisoners may be medically examined provided that his full consent to such examination is first obtained, and it is thought desirable, either in the interests of the prisoner or the prosecution. The Police Surgeon or in his absence a duly qualified Surgeon will conduct such an examination as early as possible after the arrest. Every person to whom this Order applies must be clearly told by the Lockup Keeper that it is inappropriate to examine him and that he has the right to object if he so desires, for in the absence of consent any examination would be an assault. Each person that consents must be further informed that if he desires the attendance of a qualified medial man on his behalf and at his expense, an opportunity for such attendance with the Police Surgeon will be given and arrangements are to be made accordingly. An entry is to be made in the Occurrence Book and signed by the Lockup -Keeper at the time of every proposal for a medical examination and of the fact of consent or refusal given by the prisoner in his presence, also of the offer made to the accused to allow a qualified medical man to attend to attend on his behalf, and, of the fact of the accused having accepted or rejected such offer, and such entry should read to the accused person and signed by him. If an examination is made, and a committal for trial takes place the officer must attend the trial and have the entry with him to prove the consent. Where a prisoner is in custody on any charge in which a personal medical examination may be material to the accused, but not being an offence to which paragraph 1 extends, if the accused or their friends (acting with their consent) expressly desire such examination it is to be made either by the Police Surgeon or by any qualified Surgeon or medical man attending on the part of the accused, in which latter case the Police Surgeon is also to be present, and the officer in charge of the Station is expressly to enter in the Occurrence Book the request of the accused and the compliance with it and to report the facts. It will be observed that it is of the utmost importance that any medical examination required under the above circumstances should be made at the earliest possible moment after the prisoner's arrest, and prior to this being taken before a Magistrate. Medical gentlemen concerned will be warned as to the date and hour their Attendance at Court will be required. Bills received from Police Surgeons to be submitted to the Chief Constable for approval.

General Order No. 131 5th April 1895 Pedlars Act 1870 The attention of Superintendent's is drawn to General Order dated 28th March 1871 and the letter from the Home Secretary (copy herewith) which accompanied the order named, and he directs that the Instructions therein given will be strictly adhered to. The Home Secretary's letter will be put up with the confidential document in Superintendents Offices and in cases of transfers etc. handed to successors. Copy Whitehall 20th March 1871 Sir I am directed by M4 Secretary Bruce to inform you that his attention has been called to the laxity with which grants of Certificates under the Pedlar's Act 1870, have in certain Police Divisions been made to Vagrants, Mendicants and other improper persons, and the consequence he deems is necessary to point out to you the requirements of the Act with which it is your Duty to comply with. The 5th Section of the Act prescribes that a Pedlar's Certificate shall be granted to any person by the Chief Officer of the Police of the District in which the applicant resides being satisfied that the applicant is a person of good character. In the discharge of the duty thus assigned to you, you will not be justified in granting a Certificate to anyone casual passing through your District, merely because you happen not to know anything to the prejudice of the applicant, still less without any investigation into the applicant's character. It is incumbent on you to satisfy yourself by positive evidence that the applicant, so far as his calling admit is a bona fide resident in your district and that he is a good character and unless that you are so satisfied, to postpone the granting of the Certificate until sufficient evidence has been supplied. In cases of suspicion you should be careful to verify the representations made to you and under no circumstances should you omit to put the question to the applicant whether he has been convicted of Felony, or of any misdemeanour involving dishonesty in order that if the answer is in the affirmative, the Certificate may be withheld in pursuance of the 15 Section of the Act, or if the answer is in the negative and subsequently prove to be contrary to the fact, the applicant may be punished and deprived of his Certificate in accordance with the 12th Section of the Act. It is only by means of these precautions that abuses of the Act can be prevented. I am Sir The Chief Constable Your Obedient Servant Of the County of Chester Signed A. F. O.
