§ 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?
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE
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.
