§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, further to his answer of 30 March, what was the best of the last three years of service of pay that will have accrued to Sir David McNee prior to his retirement; and whether he will take steps to ensure that his two-thirds of pension thereof will be limited to his not accepting any further employment in public or private employment.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
This will not be known until later this year. The pension, to which Sir David has contributed throughout his career, is payable under the police pension regulations and cannot be made subject to conditions on the lines proposed. If he subsequently accepted a public appointment, adjustments might be made to the salary for the post.
