§ 32. Commander Locker-Lampson
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that widows of ex-police officers, some of whom served in the House of Commons, are receiving only us. 6d, per week; and whether he will review these pensions and increase them?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
The figure to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers, amounting to Lao a year, is that of the ordinary rate of pension granted under the Police Pensions Act to the widows of +he lower ranks of the police service, and I regret that I can hold out no hope of legislation increasing the general rate of pensions already existing.
