§ CAPTAIN PIRIE (Aberdeen, N.)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, whether the difference in the scale of police pensions in England and Scotland will be made the subject of legislation at an early date, in view of the fact that owing to the present state of business no immediate legislation can be proposed; and whether the conclusions can be stated at which the Secretary for Scotland has arrived as the result of the serious attention which he has given to the matter?
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. GRAHAM MURRAY,) Buteshire
I have nothing to add to the answer I gave the hon. Member yesterday. The Secretary for Scotland considers it would be premature to state his conclusions at this time.
