§ SIR GEORGE CAMPBELL (Kirkcaldy, &c.)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether the pensions which he has recommended for Sir Edmund Henderson and other retiring officials of the Metropolitan Police, are pensions to which they are strictly entitled under the rules of the service, on the ground of age, service, &c. and have not been awarded or specially increased on account of their recent services?
THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. CHILDERS) (Edinburgh, S.)
The pensions to be awarded to Sir Edmund Henderson and Mr. Walker, the only other officer who has retired, will come strictly within the Rules of the Service. Mr. Walker's pension, coming wholly out of the Metropolitan Police Fund, has been already sanctioned by me. Sir Edmund Henderson's pension, coming partly and chiefly from the Imperial Fund and partly from the Police Fund, is still the subject of consideration with the Treasury.
