§ MR. WALROND (Devonshire, Tiverton)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will state what extra allowance will be made to the police force in attendance on the House in respect of the prolonged sitting of Wednesday, 20th March.
§ (Answered by Mr. Secretary Gladstone.) I can only refer the hon. Member to the Answer which I gave on Monday last to the hon. Member for West Wolver Hampton, which was as follows:—"The police on duty at the Houses of Parliament receive, while so employed, a special allowance of 1s. a day in addition to the ordinary pay of their rank. In addition to this they receive compensation for all extra duty in the shape of 'time off' and also of special leave. This is, I think, sufficient to meet the requirements of the case."
