HC Deb 25 June 1976 vol 913 c656W
Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much personal injury insurance is given to policemen by their constabularies; how this varies between single and married men; and how much insurance money is paid in damages to policemen for personal injuries per annum.

Dr. Summerskill

The Police Pensions Regulations provide for the payment of a pension to the widow of a policeman killed in the course of his duty or to a police officer who has to retire as a result of an injury sustained on duty. Police authorities do not normally provide additional insurance cover at public expense.
