§ Mr. GILBERT
asked the Home Secretary whether he has decided to appoint a Committee to consider the pay, duties, and grievances of the Metropolitan Police; if so, will he state who are the members of the Committee and what are its references; and if it has instructions to report as soon as possible?
§ Mr. SHORTT
The Government has decided to appoint a Committee to report on the pay, pensions, and method of recruiting of police forces in Great Britain. I hope to be able in a few days to state the terms of reference and the constitution of the Committee. I will ask the Committee to report as soon as possible.
