§ 72. Mr. WATERSON
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if men of the police forces who were due to retirement during the War, but owing to the national situation remained with the forces of the Crown, received additional pay for the extra time; and, if so, what amount was granted?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Shortt)
This was a matter for the different police authorities to decide, and I understand they decided it in different ways. In any case the rates of pay were very generally increased during the War, and the men whose services were retained in the police had therefore the benefit of higher pensions on retirement than if they had been allowed to retire at an earlier date.
