§ 12. Mr. McENTEE
asked the Home Secretary whether he will furnish a statement showing the number of ex-police officers in receipt of pensions other than war pensions; the average amount of pension per head; and the number of such pensioners who are in paid employment while in receipt of their pensions?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
The number of retired members of police forces in England and Wales in receipt of police pensions on 31st March, 1934, was 35,184, and the average pension was about £150. I have no information as to the number who have obtained employment since they retired.
