§ Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department to what extent it is his policy to adhere to the police wages formula, reached in 1942 after the studies of the Willink Commission, in future pay offers made to the police.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
Police pay is negotiated by the Police Council for Great Britain. I made it clear to representatives of the Council on 22nd November that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and I were in agreement with the continued operation of the formula reached in 1962.
