§ (3)As from the first day of April, nineteen hundred and nineteen, pensions, gratuities, and allowances which are required by the Police (Scotland) Act, 18S0, to be calculated according to the average annual amount of pay received by a constable for the three years next before the date of his retirement or death shall, instead of being so calculated (except where the con-stable at the date of his retirement or death holds a rank to which he has been promoted within the said three years), be calculated according to the amount of his annual pay at the date of his retirement or death."2474
§ Mr. SHORTT
I beg to move, at the end of Sub-section (3) to insert the wordsso, however, that the pension shall not be less than if the constable had continued in his former rank.This merely carries out what I explained when I moved the new Clause earlier today to provide that in the case of the man promoted within the next two or three years there shall be no loss of benefit in the matter of pensions or gratuities and allowances.
§ Amendment agreed to.
