§ Mr. W. COOTE
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland when he proposes to give effect to the promise made by successive Chief Secretaries for Ireland to amend the pensions of the members of the Royal Irish Constabulary who were retired before the schedule of amended pensions came into force?
§ Sir H. GREENWOOD
Except in a small number of cases the pensions of members of the Royal Irish Constabulary who retired subsequent to 1st April, 1919, being the date from which the new scale of police pensions takes effect, have been reassessed, and payment at the increased rates is already being made. I can assure the hon. Member that every effort is being1952W made to complete the work as soon as possible.
