asked the Home Secretary how many police pensioners there are now alive who retired prior to 1st September, 1918, between 1st September, 1918, and 1st April, 1919, and since 1st April, 1919, respectively; and the total annual sum paid to each of these classes?

The number of retired members of police forces in England and Wales who were in receipt of pensions on 31st March last was 32,249. Of these, 12,167 were granted their pensions before 1st April, 1919, and 20,082 on or after that date. I regret I am not in a position to give the other figures asked for, but I may mention that the total cost of the pensions so paid in 1928–29 was £4,405,565.
