The Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) has announced it will not be pursuing an appeal against the judgment issued by the pension Employment Tribunal on 6 June 2023.

The Federation’s National Board and National Council, which is made up of representatives of rank and file officers across the eight regions of England and Wales, have decided not to appeal the judgment.

PFEW said it was ‘unreservedly sorry’ and has offered an unconditional apology for the distress caused.

A PFEW statement issued yesterday said: “The claimants’ remedy will now be determined at a separate hearing and, in the weeks and months ahead, we will be taking a proactive approach to engage, rebuild bridges, learn lessons and implement change.”
