§ Mr. WILES
asked if the Home Secretary's attention had been called to the fact that forty-two police constables and two sergeants have received extra pay for the overtime caused by the lying-in-state of His late Majesty King Edward VII. in Westminster Hall, but that twenty-one police constables and a chief inspector who served the same extra hours have up to the present received no special financial consideration; and, if so, will he state why the extra pay has not been granted?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
Yes, Sir. After consideration of further facts which have been brought to his knowledge, the Com- 494 missioner of Police, with the concurrence of my right hon. Friend, has arranged to extend the benefits of the extra pay to all the police officers stationed in the Houses of Parliament.
