§ MR. O. V. MORGAN (Battersea)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, The number of police officers employed in the House of Lords and the number employed in the House of Commons who received extra pay the whole year, and who receive extra pay during the Parliamentary Session, and what rank these officers hold; and, whether he can state the total number of each rank from each House that will be removed at the end of the Session under Sir Charles Warren's new Regulations?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
In the House of Lords one sergeant and six police constables, in the House of Commons one sergeant and nine police constables, receive extra pay all the year round. In addition to this, there is the night watch paid by the Office of Works, consisting of one Inspector, two sergeants, and 16 police constables. In the House of Lords 26 police constables, in the House of Commons two sergeants and 70 police constables, receive extra pay during the Session. The Chief Commissioner cannot say definitely how many 1130 of each rank from each House will be removed at the end of the Session; but there will probably be not more than seven men affected by the new Regulations.
