§ 10. Colonel DAY
asked the Home Secretary the number of detective officers who have resigned from the Metropolitan Police during the last 12 months, prior to completion of service for which a pension would be payable?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
Only five detective officers with less than 25 years' service left the Metropolitan Police Force during the last 12 months. They had all been found medically unfit for further service; four of them were granted pensions on medical grounds and the fifth, whose service was short, received a gratuity.
