HC Deb 06 March 1924 vol 170 c1588
37. Mr. HAYES

asked the Home Secretary whether he will arrange that police officers returned medically unfit shall be retained in the service until any appeal against the medical decision has been disposed of; and will he consider the remission of cost to an officer lodging such appeal, whether successful or not?


The point referred to in the first part of the question is under consideration. The reply to the second part is in the negative.


Does the right hon. Gentleman realise, and will he help to remedy, that position, because many officers find that the expense of the appeal very often precludes the appeal being made?


I will look into it.
