HC Deb 01 February 1945 vol 407 c1649W
Mr. Craik Henderson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the cost to public funds per annum of the Police Regulation Orders of 22nd December, 1944, S.R. & O. 1476 and 1477.

Mr. H. Morrison

The Police Regulations of the 22nd December, 1944, brought the war supplement to police pay into conformity with the Civil Service war bonus. Without an elaborate inquiry I cannot say how this will affect expenditure on police pensions or on making up the Service pay of policemen in the Armed Forces; but I assume that expenditure on the pay of police officers will have increased by about £430,000 a year, and half of this amount will be paid from the Exchequer.
