§ Sir J. WITHERS
asked the Home Secretary whether he will publish a return showing the numbers, places where employed, and pay of whole-time and part-time police matrons employed in the Metropolitan, borough, and county police force in England and Wales; and whether he will give orders that this information may in future appear in a column in the statistical tables of His Majesty's Inspectors' Report?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
The numbers of whole-time and part-time matrons employed, showing the numbers of each force, will be given in the tables referred to by the hon. Member, which are now in preparation. I do not think it would he practicable, or serve any useful purpose, to include in the tables particulars of the rates of pay fixed by the various police authorities, as the conditions of employment, whether whole-time, part-time or occasional, vary so widely.
