§ 36. Mr. G. MACDONALD
asked the Home Secretary whether the terms of the appointment of the present Commissioner of the Police and the emoluments be receives are the same as those paid to his predecessor?
§ Sir H. SAMUEL
The terms and emoluments are the same except that in Lord Trenchard's case the pay of the post (at the rate of £3,000 a year) has been abated by 10 per cent. under the Superannuation Act, 1887, because Lord Trenchard is in receipt of half-pay as Marshal of the Royal Air Force, and by a further 1234 10 per cent. as part of the measures recently introduced for securing economy in police expenditure.
