§ Viscount WOLMER
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the distressing conditions to which ex-police pensioners who retired previous to the new scale of pensions have been reduced owing to the increased cost of living; and whether any allowance can be granted to them to restore their pensions to the pre-war value?
