asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what provision is made under his regulations and what circumstances have to be fulfilled for a police officer, who has served in a police force and then joins another police force, to be allowed to have calculated in his favour his service in the former force for the purpose of pension.

Where a regular policeman transfers from one police force to another with the consent of the chief officer of the first force, he is entitled under the Police Pensions Regulations to reckon his pensionable service in the first force as pensionable service in the second force. Where service in the two forces is not continuous, the police authority of the second force may, in their discretion, allow the man to reckon as pensionable service in the second force the whole or part of his pensionable service in the first force on payment of a proportionate part of any gratuity or return of pension contributions which he received on retirement from the first force.
