§ 85. Mr. MUFF
asked the Secretary of State far the Home Department if his attention has been drawn to the fact that an ex-police inspector and ex-police constables have been engaged as doorkeepers at illegal night clubs; whether these ex-officers were in receipt of a police pension; and, if so, is it his intention to cancel their pensions?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Short)
My right hon. Friend is aware that pensioned police officers, including a pensioned ex-inspector, have been so employed in one or two instances and the question of withdrawing the pension has been considered; but having regard to the fact that when the matter came to notice the employment had ceased, it was decided to take no action beyond the caution administered by the Commissioner.
