HC Deb 09 July 1888 vol 328 c739
MR. G. W. ELLIOT (York, N.R., Richmond)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, having regard to the fact that Bills providing for the pensions of police constables have been introduced in successive Sessions and have met with general approval, the Government will be prepared to bring in a Bill on the subject next Session or to give facilities to a private Member introducing such a Bill?

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

The Government fully recognize the importance of the subject of pensions for police constables; and they have every hope that it will be in their power to introduce a Bill in the next Session of Parliament to place the matter on a satisfactory footing.
