§ 29. Mr. TOOLE
asked the Home Secretary if he has any figures showing how many retired and pensioned policemen are at present engaged in remunerative employment; how many are still engaged in the police service in England and Wales who are eligible for retirement on pension; and what is their rank?
§ Mr. SHORT
My right hon Friend has no available information as to the nature of the present posts held by police pensioners, nor can he say how many men qualified by length of service to retire on pension are at present employed in the county and borough police; but in the Metropolitan Police there were on 23rd instant 32 superintendents, 123 inspectors, 54 sergeants and 90 constables so qualified.
