HC Deb 17 November 1955 vol 546 c55W
73. Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what increases in pay will be given to prison officers and the Metropolitan Police to meet increased rents and Purchase Tax.

Major Lloyd-George

I cannot accept the view that increases in taxation imposed for national reasons on the whole country should automatically justify higher payments, at the expense of the rest of the community, to particular classes of persons.
