I writing to yourselves in regards to information that I would like from the Police federation regarding the legal advice taken from Legal experts some six years ago regarding the 1987 and 2006 Police pension agreement. As a Member of the Police federation I would like to see the legal advice given to the PFEW that any challenge to the government’s decision to let some officers keep the 1987 and 2006 pension and others to be changed to the 2015 scheme would not be successful and would affect other officers.
The PFEW has sent numerous comments to its members regarding not making a claim via Leigh Day Solicitors and has stated that they have taken expert legal advice regarding this which none of its members have ever seen despite asking for the information to be published.
I would like the advice given to the PFEW from its expert legal team regarding the above to be sent to myself under the Freedom of Information Request process.
