§ Mr. W. T. Williams
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what arrangements are now made to compensate Metropolitan Police officers injured or killed in the course of their duties.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
Special provision is made under the Police Pensions Regulations for police officers who are disabled as a result of an injury received in the course of duty, and for their widows if they die in consequence of the injury. The widow's pension is payable at a higher rate if the officer's death results from an attack which the police authority regard as intrinsically likely to cause death.
