HC Deb 02 November 1973 vol 863 cc23-4W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many police officers in the Metropolitan police force worked hours in excess of their standard working week in the year preceding the latest date for which figures are available; what was the average number of hours worked each week during the year by police officers in each grade up to the rank of chief inspector; and how the figures compare with those for the previous year.

Mr. Carlisle

The great majority of officers work hours in excess of the standard working week but I regret that no figures are available other than those I gave to the hon. Member on 12th July.—[Vol. 859, c.398–9.]
