§ 23. Mr. MACMASTER
asked the Home Secretary how many discharged soldiers have the Government taken on to replace the policemen who recently deserted their posts of duty?
§ Mr. SHORTT
All the men who have been recruited in the Metropolitan Police to replace those who recently refused duty have served in the War, either with the Navy, Army, Air Force, or Mercantile Marine; and I understand that this is true-also of the other police forces concerned.
