HC Deb 22 July 1968 vol 769 c28W
Mr. Edward M. Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many Scottish police forces are eligible to apply for the undermanning allowance; and how many such applications have been made.

Mr. Ross

Any Scottish police authority is entitled to ask the Police Council for Great Britain to consider the payment of under-manning allowance in its force. It would be for the Police Council to decide whether the application should be submitted to me for approval. I am not aware that any Scottish authority has applied to the Police Council for consideration of payment of undermanning allowance.
