§ CAPTAIN NORTON
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether there has been an alteration in the dates of issue of Metropolitan Police boots from the 1st April and 1st October to 1st June and 1st October, which will cause the proposed money allowance to become due on 1st October 1897 instead of 1st August of that year, thus entailing a loss to the men of nearly £3,000?
§ SIR MATTHEW WHITE RIDLEY
I am afraid I do not altogether understand the hon. Member's Question. There, has, however been no such change as he mentions, and there is no foundation for the suggestion that there has been or will be a loss of £3,000 to the men.
