HC Deb 29 June 1914 vol 64 c40
96. Colonel BURN

asked if it is intended to carry into effect the recommendations of the Commission which recently sat to consider the question of increasing the pay and allowances of the Dublin Metropolitan Police and the Royal Irish Constabulary?


Generally speaking, without going into details, the answer is, yes.

Colonel BURN

Will the right hon. Gentleman do his best to see that these recommendations are enforced; because does it not seem reasonable to imagine that if the Home Rule Bill becomes law that there may be considerable difficulties which will prevent these men having what has been a long-wished-for and a long-desired benefit?


I am going into the matter. I have great anxiety to see those recommendations carried out as quickly as possible.
