§ Mr. SUMMERBELL
asked whether, in view of the late sittings of the House, any additional allowance is made to the policemen in attendance at the House for ser-vice after 12 midnight; and, if so, the amount per hour of such extra allowance?
§ Mr. GLADSTONE
The police on duty at the Houses of Parliament receive, while so employed, a special allowance of a shilling a day in addition to the ordinary pay of their rank. Further compensation for extra duty is given in the shape of "time off" and also of special leave.
