HC Deb 06 December 1944 vol 406 c564W
Sir R. Tasker

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the number of men employed in the Metropolitan Police who have been injuriously affected by the Police Act of 1921.

Mr. H. Morrison

If my hon. Friend has in mind the number of men now serving in the Metropolitan Police Force who joined the force between 1st July, 1919 (the date from which the scale of ordinary pensions embodied in the Police Pensions Act, 1921, was applied to serving members of police forces) and the 28th August, 1921 (the date when the Act came into force), the answer to his Question is 3,516.
