HC Deb 20 February 1975 vol 886 c458W
Mr. Burden

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many detective chief inspectors in the Metropolitan Police force refused promotion to superintendent in 1973 and 1974 because promotion would entail a fall in income.

Dr. Summerskill

Out of 79 selected, none refused promotion. But I understand that one officer made it clear that he did not wish to be considered.
