§ Mr. HAZLETON
asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he will state whether Sir Robert Anderson is in possession of a pension; and, if so, what is the amount; whether such pension is in respect only of work done at the Home Office, or whether its amount was calculated on work of any special nature or work done in any other branch of the public service?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
On his retirement from the post of assistant commissioner of police, in 1901, Sir Robert Anderson was granted a pension of £900 a year. The service in respect of which this pension was awarded included service at the Home Office before 1877, service from 1877 to 1888 as secretary to the prison commissioners, and service from 1888 to 1901 as assistant commissioner of police.
