HC Deb 02 March 1896 vol 37 c1490
MR. A. R. SOUTTAR (Dumfriesshire)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether he has been able to make the inquiry, promised last Session, into the conditions under which pensions are granted to the Scottish police; and whether he can now see his way to redress the existing inequality, by raising them to the same level as in England?


Inquiry has been made into this matter, but no decision has yet been arrived at. As the hon. Member is aware, special legislation will be necessary if a change is to be made.
