HC Deb 10 May 1962 vol 659 c61W
38. Mr. Callaghan

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that a pay claim was submitted by the Prison Officers' Association to the Prison Commission on 13th November, 1961; why six months have elapsed without a reply having been given by the Prison Commission; and how soon the Prison Officers' Association can expect an answer.

Mr. Fletcher-Cooke

This claim, which has been the subject of discussion with the Prison Officers' Association since its original submission, has raised a number of issues requiring careful consideration. I hope that it will be possible to send the Association a reply quite soon.
