HC Deb 10 November 1921 vol 148 c579
28. Sir J. BUTCHER

asked the Prime Minister whether the assurance given by him in August last that in any settlement which may be reached the interests of the Royal Irish Constabulary and the Dublin Metropolitan Police will be secured applies both to the existing members of those two bodies and to the pensioners and retired members of those bodies, many of whom are in great straits in regard to money?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Lloyd George)

Certainly; my hon. and learned Friend can rest assured that the interests both of serving members and of pension ex-members of the Irish Police Forces will be fully safeguarded in any settlement which may be arrived at.
