Reduction of pension in case of default

36.  Where a police officer or a person who has been a police officer becomes permanently disabled and has brought about or substantially contributed to the disablement by his own default, the Board may reduce the amount of any injury award payable to him by it by an amount not exceeding a half of that to which he would otherwise be entitled :

Provided that—

(a)this regulation shall not apply where the person concerned has been a police officer and is in receipt of an ill-health pension under regulation B3 of the 1988 Regulations and would, if he had continued to serve instead of retiring with that pension, have been entitled to reckon for the purposes of those Regulations 25 years’ pensionable service (and, for the purposes of this proviso, in the case of a police officer who has spent one or more periods in part-time service, in determining the number of years of pensionable service he would have been entitled to reckon a period of service by virtue of which his pensionable service is reckonable is reckonable as if it were a period of full-time service); and

(b)where the injury pension of a police officer by whom pension contributions were payable under regulation G2 of the 1988 Regulations has been reduced under this regulation, then if when he attains the age of 60 years the reduced pension is less than the amount of the deferred pension which would have been payable had he been granted such a pension under regulation B5 of the 1988 Regulations on the date of his ceasing to serve it shall be increased to that amount.
