HC Deb 29 June 1888 vol 327 c1716
MR. STANLEY LEIGHTON (Shropshire, Oswestry)

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether the conditions as to superannuation and pension under which the members of the Police Force, including the Chief Constables, entered the Service, will be in any way affected or modified by the provisions of the Local Government Bill?

THE PRESIDENT (Mr. RITCHIE) (Tower Hamlets, St. George's)

The powers of Quarter Sessions as to superannuation and pension of the members of the Police Force are proposed by the Local Government Bill to be transferred to the Joint Committee of the Quarter Sessions and the County Council. Subject to this, those powers will not be affected. The police superannuation funds will be transferred to the County Council under Clause 63 (1) of the Bill; and they will be held by them for the same purposes, and subject to the same conditions, as they would have been held by Quarter Sessions if the Bill had not passed.
