HC Deb 13 August 1919 vol 119 c1304

(by Private Notice) asked the Home Secretary whether he was aware that the dismissed policemen in Liverpool have been refused the pay earned up to the date of their dismissal, whereas the London police have received theirs, and whether he will take action to see that the money is paid to them forthwith, seeing that some of them are in a state approaching starvation?


I am informed that the Liverpool police authorities are advised that the provisions of Section 4 of the County and Borough Police Act, 1859, prevents them paying any arrears of pay to the men concerned. I will go into the matter further and communicate with my hon. Friend.
