HC Deb 06 July 1916 vol 83 cc1727-95
(1) Where for purposes connected with the present War a constable in receipt of a pension under the Police Act, 1890, has, whether before or after the passing of this Act, enlisted or entered or been granted a commission in any of His Majesty's Forces, or obtained employment under the Admiralty or Army Council or the Ministry of Munitions, or entered or reentered the service of any police force, Sub-section (2) of Section thirteen of the Police Act, 1890 (which relates to the suspension of pension in cases of appointments to new offices) shall not and shall be deemed never to have applied except to such extent as the police authority may otherwise determine.
(2) This Section shall apply to Scotland with the substitution of references to the Police (Scotland) Act, 1890, for the references to the Police Act, 1890.
I beg to move, in Sub-section (1), after the word "not" ["shall not"], to insert the word "apply." I think it is clear that this Amendment is necessary in order to supply an obvious misprint.
