§ 56. Captain JESSEL
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is now in a position to state when he will be able to lay before the House of Commons the Minute required by Section 1 (6) of the Metropolitan Police Act, 1912; and when he intends to make a full statement of his proposals as regards the revised scale of pay for the Metropolitan Police?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. McKenna)
I cannot add anything at present to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member for Dulwich last Monday.
Mr. F. HALL (Dulwich)
Are the police to receive any consideration during this Session of Parliament, or are they not?
Will the right hon. Gentleman say whether he has taken the necessary steps to lay the Minute on the Table, and when the matter may be discussed in the House of Commons?
§ Mr. McKENNA
I have already informed the hon. Member that I propose to lay the Minute on the Table of the House.
§ Mr. SPEAKER
The hon. Member is repeating a question which the right hon. Gentleman has already answered.
