§ MR. O'HANLON (Cavan, E.)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, How many nights' extra duty have constables been engaged in and about the House for which they have not been paid any money; when they are to get these wages; and, how much per night he intends to give each man?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. STUART-WORTLEY) (Sheffield, Hallam)
(who replied) said: The police have been employed longer than usual on two nights in this Session— namely, March 21 and May 9. The Chief Commissioner has recommended that for the former of these two occasions the men should receive 2s. 6d. each, and the Inspectors 5s. each, the messengers of the House having been granted an extra allowance for that occasion. It is understood that the messengers will not be granted any extra allowance for the 9th instant; and in order that there may be a uniformity in the allowances to messengers and police it is not proposed to grant an extra allowance to the police for that day.
