To ask Her Majesty's Government how many police forces they have authorised to forcibly retire police officers who have 30 years or more service.
Police authorities have responsibility for administering the police pension scheme and making specified decisions under it. The power to compel police officers with 30 years or more service to retire has been in the relevant regulations since they were enacted in 1987.
The Government have no role to play in any exercise of this power by police authorities.
