Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that the Government have officially estimated a minimum of a 9 per cent. increase in the cost of living during the current year; and whether, in any settlement of an award of a salary increase to police for loss of earning capacity due to past inflation, he will instruct his representatives on the Police Council to ensure that an additional 9 per cent. is added to compensate for this further loss in earnings due to inflation for the next year.

Mr. Sharples

No to both parts of the Question.
