§ Sir D. NEWTON
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the pension of a police inspector who retired before the War in certain districts was £1 11s. per week, i.e., £1 12s. 4d. less than that of constables who served under him, and £2 18s. 6d. per week less than an inspector's pension of to-day; and what steps, if any, he proposes to take to remove this anomaly?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
As my hon. Friend is aware, the Pensions Increase Acts have been passed to meet, so far as possible, the case of the pre-War pensioners. I cannot hold out any hope of further legislation on the subject.
