§ 56. Mrs. Braddock
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will reconsider the offer of 3s. 9d. increase per week made to inspectors and chief inspectors of police, who are not on overtime rank, for responsibility and extra duties, in view of the fact that they refused the offer as being inadequate.
§ Major Lloyd-George
The hon. Lady is no doubt referring to the claim submitted to Panel C of the Police Council for Great Britain in August, 1954, on behalf of inspectors and chief inspectors, on which the Panel has failed to reach agreement. I understand that in the meantime a fresh pay claim has recently been lodged on behalf of all the federated ranks of the police, including the inspectors and chief inspectors, which is now before the Police Council for Great Britain. In these circumstances it would not be proper for me to comment on either claim.
