§ 35. Mr. HAYES (for Mr. BROAD)
asked the Home Secretary whether he can now state the Government's intentions as to making cash payments to the police strikers, following on the Report of the Committee presided over by Sir William Mackenzie?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The recommendation of the Committee was that police authorities should be authorised, in their discretion, to apply the whole, or any part., of the rateable deductions made from the pay of the policemen who went on strike in 1919 in such manner as they may think fit for the benefit of the men's wives or children (if any). I am at present in consultation with the police authorities concerned in the matter.
