HC Deb 12 May 1924 vol 173 cc890-1
31. Lieut. - Colonel HOWARD-BURY

asked the Prime Minister whether it is the policy of the Government to reinstate the 2,000 policemen who were dismissed for taking part in the strike in 1919?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME OFFICE (Mr. Rhys Davies)

I have been asked to reply. The answer is in the negative, but there are certain points, apart from reinstatement, which are still under examination.


Is the answer of the hon. Gentleman in keeping with the terms of the letter that the Home Secretary communicated last week, giving a definite refusal without qualification in this case?


I have already given a full reply to the question.
