1.  Subject to paragraphs 2, 3 and 4, a dependent relative’s special pension shall be of a weekly amount equal to 45% of the average pensionable pay for a week of the member of a police force in respect of whose death it was granted (“the deceased”).

2.  In respect of any week in respect of which there are payable in respect of the deceased’s death both–

(a)a widow’s special pension or, where the deceased was a married woman or a woman in a civil partnership, a dependent relative’s special pension granted to her widower or surviving civil partner; and

(b)a dependent relative’s special pension other than, where the deceased was a married woman or a woman in a civil partnership, one granted as aforesaid,

the dependent relative’s special pension mentioned in sub paragraph (b) shall not be of the amount mentioned in paragraph 1 but, subject to paragraphs 3 and 4, of an amount equal to 20% of the deceased’s average pensionable pay for a week.

3.  The amount of a dependent relative’s special pension determined in accordance with paragraph 1 or 2 shall be increased in accordance with regulation 29 (increase by reference to the Pensions (Increase) Acts).

4.—(1) Where in respect of any week the aggregate amount of–

(a)any widow’s special pension; and

(b)any child’s special allowance,

payable in respect of the deceased’s death equals or exceeds the amount of the deceased’s average pensionable pay for a week, no dependent relative’s special pension shall be payable in respect of that week.

(a)any widow’s special pension;

(b)any child’s special allowance; and

(c)any dependent relative’s special pension,
