UK - Scotland's police budgets are being "plundered" in order to deal with a pensions' shortfall, Labour leader Wendy Alexander has claimed.
She said: "Will the first minister undertake to publish the best estimates of the police pensions' bill forecast for the next three years, so that forces can plan ahead and deal with the pensions' hole, which has been forecast to be as much as £50m next year?
"Will he reassure communities throughout Scotland that…the pensions' crisis will not be paid for out of operational police budgets?"
But first minister Alex Salmond blamed the previous Labour government for problem. He said: "The crisis that Wendy Alexander describes might have been developing over the past eight years while the Labour Party was in Government.
"The figures that she asks for are already with the police boards and local authorities, and discussions are under way on how we can address the pensions' issue, which has built up over a substantial period."
