X Not for Circulation outside the Cheshire Constabulary CHESHIRE CONSTABULARY GENERAL ORDERS 1st January 1910 ~ 4th March 1910 (Compiled by Mary Quinn Commenced (6th May 2015) (Completed 21th May 2015) General Order No. 1 Parliamentary Elections 1910 1st January 1910 The attention of the Constabulary is drawn to S.G.O. 304 /00 and the Chief Constable directs that the instructions contained therein will be strictly obeyed in every particular during the forthcoming Election as in the past. Superintendents will be careful in seeing that the Constables of their Divisions are made fully acquainted with all points named in the S.G.O. relating to their respective duties. Referring to Para B. of S.G.O. directing that, should the Presiding Officer so request one of the Constables who have been on duty at Polling Stations may accompany him with the ballot boxes to the place of counting the votes, the Chief Constable directs that where there have been two Constables on duty at distant Polling Stations the local Constable will not be detailed for this duty but will remain behind to perform duty on his district. The details of Constabulary ordered for duty either at Polling Stations or on Reserve in connection with the above Election will be dressed as follows; * Second Helmets * Second best tunics and dress trousers * Second great coats and capes * Leggings * Black gloves Where the material for the erection of secret compartments at Polling Booths have been sent to the Constables, the receipt of such will immediately be acknowledged to the Deputy Returning Officer or other persons from whom it has been received and will be kept by the Constable at his Station until called for by the Presiding Officer for the purpose of being erected at Polling Booths. Constables will understand that they have not anything to do with the erection of these compartments or with other internal arrangements for preparing the Polling Booth. In Towns or polulous places local Constables will be detailed for duty at the polling places up to 1pm, when they will be relieved by Constables on the Reserve, who will perform duty at polling places during the remainder of the day. Superintendents will arrange for such men of the Reserve as may be detailed for the above duty to make the necessary declaration of secrecy before going on duty at the polling places. The polling places will continue to be under the charge of a local Sergeant. The object the Chief Constable has in relieving local Constables is so that they may be available for necessary patrol duty in the evenings. Reserves will be divided into three portions, one portion being always available for patrol duty and the other two Sections being on Reserve at the Police Station. Patrols should be doubled i.e. One local Police Constable and one strange Police Constable working together, this especially refers after 3pm. The hours of patrol will be: From 9am to 12 noon From 12 noon to 3pm From 3pm to 6pm From 6pm to 9pm From 9pm to 12 midnight Constables at polling places or on patrol duty will remain at their posts until relieved and a fixed place should be made at which they are to be relieved, after which they will immediately return and report themselves at the Police Station. Superintendents will report to the Chief Constable on the 10th January 1910 a scheme based on the above Order and showing the details of arrangements made by Superintendents. Superintendents will also report to the Chief Constable on 10th January 1910 a scheme based on the above Order showing the details of arrangements made by the Superintendents. Superintendents will also report on the above date on the several points named in S.G.O. 304/00 and what arrangements have been made for supplying refreshments to Constables and Reserve in accordance with Para: 23 of the said S.G.O. Where small Reserves, or the remainder of the Section, not detailed for duty are ordered to assemble at Police Stations in Villages at the above Elections to patrol such Villages, the time being divided between the number of men available. In consequence of an attempt having been made to spoil votes in the ballot box at a recent Parliamentary Election by the conduct of a female (Suffragette) who gained admission to the Polling Place, the attention of Constables on duty at such places at the forthcoming Parliamentary Election will be specially drawn to the matter and they must be most careful to prevent any female entering the polling place without permission of the Presiding Officer first been obtained.

The main object is to secure establishment of procedure which will enable motor cars to be driven without being subject to all formalities which at present impede the free circulation of cars from one Country to another. Parts 11 and 111 introduce important changes in the law as regards Foreign Cars arriving in the United Kingdom from abroad. The reference in the Order in Council to "Foreigh Cars" does not of course exclude cars of British manufacture re-entering the County under the same circumstances. Licenses to drive will be issued by the Chief Customs and Excise Officer at the Port of Landing instead of by a Local Authority. (b) The procession of an International Travelling Pass and of a driving license as above described relieves a person from the necessity of obtaining a License under Section 3 of Motor Car Act 1903. (c ) In cases where under Section 1 of that Act a License must be produced when demanded by a Police Constable, both this driving License and the International Travelling Pass nust be produced. In other respects (i.e. for purposes of disqualification suspension and endorsement) the driving License corresponds under the Motor Car Act. In addition to the number plate of its own Nationality, the Motor Car must carry, fixed in a visible position on the back of the car, a distinctive oval plate displaying letter indicating that Nationality, which are as follows. Germany D Austria A Belgium B Spain E United States of America France F Great Britain & Ireland G.B. Greece G. R. Hungary H Staly I Montenegro M. N. Monaco M. C. The Netherlands N. L. Portugal P Russia R Roumania R. M. Servia S Switzerland C. H. Bulgaria B. G. The Central Register of such cars and Licenses will be kept by the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis at Scotland Yard. For the purpose of Section 4 (1) (C) of the Motor Car Act (recording of convictions and orders of suspension or disqualification must be sent and arrangements have been made by which, for the purposes of the Order in Order in Council, he will Carry out the duties in regard to furnishing particulars in respect of Registrations and Licenses which br Articles X111 and X1V of the Local Government Board's Regulations (Registrations & Licensing) of the 19th November 1903, devolve in the ordinary course on Councils of Countries and County Boroughs.
