§ GENERAL SHUTE
asked the Under Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether it is proposed to reappoint a Committee early this Session (as recommended) on the subject of Police Superannuation; and, whether he is aware that the continued unsettled state of this question has occasioned in many counties a difficulty in obtaining men for the police force?
§ SIR HENRY SELWIN-IBBETSON,
in reply, said, it was his intention to reappoint the Committee alluded to by his hon. and gallant Friend; and, indeed, he would have done so earlier but that certain Returns had not as yet been presented to the House. He believed the evidence already taken showed that enlistment into the police was very much prejudiced by the present uncertain state of their condition.
