§ MR. T. H. COCHRANE (Ayrshire, N.)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, if he will make inquiry into the conditions of granting pensions to the Scottish police, with the view to placing the Scottish police on the same footing as the English police in respect of their pensions?
§ MR. W. THORBURN (Peebles and Selkirk)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, whether his attention has been drawn to the inequality as regards retiring pensions between the English and Scotch county police forces. And, if he will give his consideration to the subject, with a view of removing the inequality which the Scotch police complain of?
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Sir CHARLES PEARSON,) Edinburgh and St. Andrew's Universities
In reply to this question and to a similar question by the hon. Member for Peebles and Selkirk, I have to say the Secretary for Scotland will consider this subject, and if the hon. 258 Members have any representation to make to him on the matter, he will be glad to receive it in writing.
