HC Deb 17 May 1962 vol 659 c141W
Mr. Callaghan

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give an estimate of the total additional annual cost of police pensions if averaging of salary in the last three years of service was abolished.

Mr. Renton

If all pensions payable to retired police officers (and their widows and dependants) in England and Wales at the present time were adjusted so as to be related to final salary instead of average salary over the last three years of service, it is estimated that the cost would be raised by rather more than £1 million per annum.
