HC Deb 21 March 1946 vol 420 cc420-1W
Lieutenant W. Griffiths

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will include among those CD. personnel receiving gratuity the men employed as auxiliary police at the internment camps in the Isle of Man, many of whom served over a period of five years.

Mr. Ede

No, Sir. As explained by the then Prime Minister in his statement of 8th March, 1945, the payment of Civil Defence gratuity is restricted to persons who were employed under Civil Defence conditions of service and whose remuneration was related to Army rates of pay. The auxiliary policemen to whom my hon. and gallant Friend refers do not fall within this category.
