65. Mr. J. Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department on what grounds the rent allowances and plain clothes allowances in police forces depend upon rank.

Mr. Ede

The Desborough Committee of 1919 recommended that the higher ranks of the police forces should receive higher rent and plain clothes allowances This has been accepted by all ranks and no representations on this point have been made to me by the Police Council.
