HC Deb 21 April 1959 vol 604 cc205-6
24. Captain Orr

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in his review of public service pensions, he will consider favourably the special case of members of the Royal Irish Constabulary who joined the Royal Ulster Constabulary, details of which have already been given to him by the hon. Member for South Belfast and others.

Mr. Amory

I am not sure what special point my hon. and gallant Friend has in mind, but I am expecting that my proposals will apply, as have previous Pensions Increase Acts, to the Royal Irish Constabulary.

Captain Orr

If I again send my right hon. Friend details of a special case which is a complicated and long-standing grievance of a very magnificent body of men, will he look at it again?

Mr. Amory

Will my hon. and gallant Friend, before he decides to whom to send it, consider whether it should go to the Home Secretary or to me? If he decides that it should come to me, then I will promise to consider it.
