asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that under Section 22 of the Police Pensions Act, 1921, the police pension funds were abolished; whether any list has ever been prepared showing the assets of the police pension funds so abolished; is he aware that the assets of the Glasgow police pension fund so abolished now amount to £363,337 and await directions for application; and whether he proposes to give any directions as to the utilisation of these assets, either towards meeting present police pensions payable in Glasgow or otherwise in meeting the heavy expenditure in Glasgow on account of unemployed and other social schemes.
