§ 34. Mr. HIGHAM
asked the Home Secretary if he has set up a Committee to deal with police pay and service; if he has, will he give the names of the members constituting the Committee; and whether he intends to grant facilities for the officials of the National Union of Police and Prison Officers to lay the case of the rank and file before them?
§ Mr. SHORTT
Yes, Sir; the Government is setting up such a Committee. I hope to announce the names of the members in a few days. Representatives of the rank and file of the police will have facilities for laying their case before the Committee.
§ Mr. BILLING
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the Government now recognise the National Union of Police and Prison Officials?
