HC Deb 18 March 1919 vol 113 cc1912-3
84. Major W. MURRAY

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether it is intended to appoint a Committee of Inquiry for Scotland to consider as to the introduction of a scheme of superannuation appli- cable to persons in the employment of Scottish local authorities; and whether such a Committee, if appointed, will be instructed to consider the cases of retired police pensioners whose pensions on retirement were fixed at rates now quite inadequate for their proper maintenance?


As regards the first part of the question I would refer to the reply given on the 3rd instant to my hon. Friend the Member for the Camlachie Division. As regards the second part the issues raised are so different that I fear it would be inappropriate to lay them for consideration before the same Committee
