§ 74. Mr. W. THORNE
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has received a resolution from the police and prison officers of London, asking for an increase of pay of 5s. per week in view of the increased cost of living; and whether he proposes to grant the increase?
I regret that I am not able to add anything to the reply which I gave as regards the police to the hon. Member for North Kerry on the 25th May last, and, as regards prison officers, to the answer which I gave to their petition forwarded through the Prison Commissioners.
§ Mr. THORNE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that all the police under the control of the local authorities in different parts of the country are allowed a war bonus?
