Lieut.-Colonel A. HERBERT
asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider the justice of raising the pensions of police constables who left the force before 1914 to the same level as the scale of pensions paid to constables who have left the force since 1914, seeing that equal pensions for equal services is a reasonable request?
§ Mr. SHORTT
I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answers given on this subject to the hon. and gallant Members for Stafford and Dulwich on the 7th and 10th July, respectively. The position remains the same, and I am sorry that I cannot propose legislation on the subject.
