Major Donald Bruce: I am sure that the hon. and gallant Member for Holderness (Lieut.-Commander Braithwaite) will pardon me if I do not go into the field which he has already covered.

When the Parliamentary Secretary was...

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions Bill: Clause I. — (Police pension regulations.) (27 Feb 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: On behalf of hon. Members on this side of the House, I wish to express pleasure that the Under-Secretary has seen fit to incorporate this Amendment in the Bill.

He complained that under the affirmative procedure it is necessary to exercise vigilance in order that these Resolutions may receive proper...

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions Bill: First Schedule. — (Repeals to come into Effect with Savings on making of Regulations and Provisions Conse- quential on those Repeals.) (27 Feb 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: Without wishing to reestablish the coalition to which the hon. Member for Rugby (Mr. W. J. Brown) referred, and of which he has appointed himself the Metternich, I would say that I entirely endorse his remarks about the unrepresentative nature of the Police Council. I do not think the hon. Gentleman meant in any way to impugn the integrity, sincerity or the complete reliability of any of the...

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions Bill: Clause 1 — (Police pension regulations.) (20 Feb 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: I support the Home Secretary in his general desire to be free from the restrictions of the Police Pensions Act, 1921.

I do not see how the particular provision which is proposed by the...

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions Bill: Clause 1 — (Police pension regulations.) (20 Feb 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: That is precisely the point I am putting in support of the hon. Gentleman. I entirely support his desire in this matter, and I was quoting in support the fact that the Home Secretary, although he said he wished to be free from the confines of the Act, nevertheless himself proposed to re-enact this same point under regulations, which only goes to indicate that the Act itself could not have...

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions Bill: Clause 1 — (Police pension regulations.) (20 Feb 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: I beg to move, in page 2, line 13, after "die," to insert "or have died." This Amendment, which I am not at all sure will accomplish the purpose I have in mind, but which I have put down in good faith, seeks to ensure that under regulations which the Home Secretary may make two important classes of people can be covered. The first class of people which I want to be covered by the new...

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions Bill: Clause 1 — (Police pension regulations.) (20 Feb 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: I would point out to my right hon. Friend that I claim only credit for the inspiration of the Amendment, not the drafting. In view of what my right hon. Friend has said, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions Bill: Clause 1 — (Police pension regulations.) (20 Feb 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: I beg to move, in page 3, line 30, at the end, to add: (8) Any regulations made under this section shall provide that any pension or additional allowance granted by virtue thereof shall not be subject to any diminution by reason of the recipient or intended recipient thereof having any other source of income. It would perhaps be prudent on this occasion to put forward a modest disclaimer in...

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions Bill: Clause 1 — (Police pension regulations.) (20 Feb 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: I am obliged to my right hon. Friend for reinforcing my argument for the abolition of former conditions which, in some circumstances, impose a means test. He said earlier today that the conditions in the Police Force, by reason of which wages remained static, whereas wages in industry had gone up, placed the police in an unfavourable position in certain instances.
