HC Deb 03 November 1966 vol 735 cc142-3W
48. Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what sum has been contributed to the fund set up by his Department for the dependants of policemen.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

In addition to the single donation of £100,000 with which the Fund was started, some £111,000, including £43,000 from Metropolitan Police officers, had been received by 31st October. Further substantial donations are expected when formalities for the registration of the Trust as a charity have been completed. My noble Friend, Lord Stonham has been acting as convenor of the Fund but apart from the Permanent Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, all the Trustees will be serving police officers: and it will be for the Trustees, not for my Department, to run the Trust.
