HC Deb 13 March 1958 vol 584 cc72-3W
67. Mr. Beswick

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he proposes to ensure that disabled police officers who are paid an element of their disability pension under the National Insurance Scheme are allowed the benefit of the recent increase in pension in the same way as other contributors to the insurance scheme.

Mr. R. A. Butler

It has been the policy of successive Governments that the amount of injury awards under public service pensions schemes must take account of any National Insurance benefits for which the pensioner is eligible in respect of the same injury. Police officers' pension contributions have been reduced to take account of this.
