To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what assessment his Department has made of the adequacy of pension sharing orders relating to police pensions; and if he will review his policy to ensure that people in receipt of police pensions are not disadvantaged by such orders in the event that they become divorced.

Pension sharing is one way in which the pension entitlements of divorcing parties may be split. It is governed by legislation which applies generally to pensions on divorce. Following pension sharing, a pension for the ex-spouse is calculated using actuarial guidance as prescribed. We have no plans to make changes to the pension sharing arrangements for the police pension scheme.
