asked the Home Secretary whether the expenditure of the police in respect of protection of the Bank of England as at present evacuated will rank for Exchequer grant, or whether the whole cost is borne on the local rates or by the Bank of England; and whether this police protection is subject to the survey and report of His Majesty's Inspector of Constabulary in respect of his certificate of efficiency?
