HC Deb 15 November 1920 vol 134 c1550W

asked the Home Secetary whether police officers who forfeited leave during the War have received, or will receive, monetary compensation for this loss; and, if so, will this compensation be extended to those of the police strikers who forfeited their leave under the same conditions?


I am asked to reply on behalf of the Home Secretary. Constables who lost weekly rest days during part of the War have no right to compensation: but many police authorities have in their discretion given either money compensation or extra leave. No such compensation can be given to men who have been dismissed for refusing duty.
