HC Deb 11 June 1896 vol 41 c853
CAPTAIN PIRIE (Aberdeen, N.)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, whether the Government is aware that dissatisfaction exists in the police force in Scotland on the ground of the inferiority of the Scotch to that of the English police pension scale; whether the Government intend to propose legislation in the direction of assimilating the scale of pensions for the police in Scotland to that which is enjoyed by the police in England; and, when any Bill on this subject may be expected?


The Secretary for Scotland, in answer to a question by my hon. Friend the member for North Ayrshire in August last, promised to give this matter his attention. He has done so, but it will not be possible in the present state of business to propose any legislation this session.
