1Maintenance of British civil police forces overseas.

(1)There shall be paid out of moneys provided by Parliament any expenses incurred by a Secretary of State, to such amount as may be sanctioned by the Treasury, in respect of persons engaged under his control in the performance of police duties in any foreign country for the time being in the occupation of His Majesty, or in the performance of police duties on behalf of the government of any country or territory outside the United Kingdom.

(2)The Secretary of State may make regulations with respect to the government and discipline of any persons engaged as aforesaid ; and may, with the approval of the Treasury, make regulations providing for the payment out of moneys provided by Parliament of pensions, allowances and gratuities to or in respect of such persons.

(3)Without prejudice to the generality of the last foregoing subsection, regulations made thereunder for the payment of pensions, allowances and gratuities may direct that, subject to such adaptations and modifications as may be prescribed by the regulations, the provisions of the Police Pensions Act, 1921, shall apply—

(a)in relation to persons engaged as aforesaid under the control of the Secretary of State ; and

(b)in relation to persons who, after being so engaged, serve in a home police force or in any such other capacity as is mentioned in section ten of the said Act (which relates to persons who serve successively in home police forces and in certain other capacities, including that of a civil servant),

as if, while so engaged, they were serving in a home police force and as if the Secretary of State were the police authority for that force.

(4)Any sums received by a Secretary of State under the Police Pensions Act, 1921, as applied by regulations made under this section, either by way of rateable deductions from the pay of persons engaged as aforesaid under his control, or by way of contributions from any other police authority towards the cost of any pension, allowance or gratuity payable under the regulations, shall be paid into the Exchequer.

(5)Any regulations made under this section shall be laid before Parliament as soon as may be after they are made, and if either House within the period of forty days after the regulations have been so laid resolves that the regulations be annulled, they shall thenceforth be void, but without prejudice to the making of new regulations. In reckoning any such period of forty days, no account shall be taken of any time during which Parliament is dissolved or prorogued or during which both Houses are adjourned for more than four days.

(6)Section one of the Rules Publication Act, 1893, shall not apply to any regulations made under this section.
