§ CAPTAIN NORTON
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether he is aware that the constables of the A Division of the Metropolitan Police have not yet received the issue of boots to which they became entitled in February last; and, whether he can state the reason for this delay?
§ SIR MATTHEW WHITE RIDLEY
The hon. Member appears to have been misinformed. The constables of the A Division did not become entitled to any issue of boots in February last.
