That this House notes with concern the Government's decision to omit Civil Nuclear Constabulary Officers from the entitlement to retire at 60 held by officers of Home Office Police Forces; further notes that carrying arms is obligatory for Civil Nuclear Constabulary Officers; understands that the work of a Civil Nuclear Police Officer is both vital in responding to incidents of national security and physically demanding; recognises concerns expressed by the Civil Nuclear Police Federation that the decision to extend the retirement age of officers to 65 or 68 could affect operational safety; and calls on the Government to reconsider its decision.
