Laws v Metropolitan Police Authority and another [2010] EWCA Civ 1099; [2010] WLR (D) 254

“By reg 37(1) of the Police (Injury Benefit) Regulations 2006, on a review of an injury pension payable under those regulations, the only duty of the police authority was to consider whether, since any previous review, the degree of pension disablement had substantially altered, and it was not open to the authority to reduce or increase a pension on such a review by virtue of a conclusion that the clinical basis of an earlier assessment had been wrong.”
