The Labour MP for Leicester East, Keith Vaz, the chair of the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee, led a Westminster Hall debate on 28 November 2012 on police pensions.
An e-petition criticising changes to police pensions, initiated by a sergeant from Suffolk, recently secured 100,000 signatures, meaning it could be eligible for a full parliamentary debate.
The Home Office said the review of police pensions was in line with other public sector workers and the changes would be introduced in 2015.
Under the government proposals, the police would pay a larger proportion of their income into their pension scheme and get smaller pay-outs based on average career salaries rather than final salaries.
Rather than retire after 30 years of service, the normal retirement age would be at 60.
