§ Sir G. DALRYMPLE-WHITE
asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the fact that, owing to the meagreness of the pre-1919 police pensions, many police pensioners are now in great poverty, he will consider a raising of such pensions, more especially as the number of men involved is not very large?
§ Mr. SHORT
As stated by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 8th instant, the Government cannot see their way to grant to pre-War pensioners benefits beyond those granted by the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1924. I regret it is not possible to single out pre-War police pensioners for special treatment.
