§ 48. Sir J. BUTCHER
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any provision has been or will be made for reassessing the pensions of pensioners of the police force in England and Scotland who retired before the War and joined His Majesty's forces and served during the War; and whether any similar provision has been or will be made for reassessing the pensions of pre-War pensioners of the Royal Irish Constabulary and Dublin metropolitan police in similar cases?
There is no special provision for re-assessment of pension in the circumstances described, nor is any under consideration. An increase of pension may, however, be granted, under the provisions of the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1920, in the cases defined by that Act both to pensioners of the police forces in England and Scotland, and to pensioners of the Royal Irish Constabulary and the Dublin metropolitan police.
