HC Deb 20 January 1949 vol 460 c55W
72. Mr. Bartlett

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the Oaksey Committee Report on conditions of pay in the Police Force will be presented.

Mr. Ede

I understand from the Chairman of the Committee that he expects to present the Report to me by Easter at the latest, and I can assure the House that there will be no delay on my part in considering the Committee's recommendations. In the meantime, I am sure that the House will join with me in deprecating forecasts of the Committee's recommendations which cannot but have an unsettling effect on the Police Service.
