Mr. Craik Henderson
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the cost to public funds per annum of the Police Regulation Orders of 22nd December, 1944, S.R. & O. 1476 and 1477.
§ Mr. H. Morrison
The Police Regulations of the 22nd December, 1944, brought the war supplement to police pay into conformity with the Civil Service war bonus. Without an elaborate inquiry I cannot say how this will affect expenditure on police pensions or on making up the Service pay of policemen in the Armed Forces; but I assume that expenditure on the pay of police officers will have increased by about £430,000 a year, and half of this amount will be paid from the Exchequer.
