asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is prepared to amend the Police and Fireman's Employment Orders, 1939 and 1944, and the Police (Employment and Offences) Orders, to allow officers who have completed their term of service to retire.

I assume that the hon. Member is referring to the Police and Firemen (Employment) Order, 1940, and the Police (Employment and Offences) Order, 1942. The first of these Orders has been revoked, and the retention of both regular and auxiliary police officers is now governed by the Police (Employment and Offences) Order, 1942. I am at present considering when this Order should be revoked, and I hope to make a statement shortly.
