HC Deb 10 January 1977 vol 923 c346W
Mr. Kinnock

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the estimate made for expenditure on police forces' pay in 1975–76; and what was the actual amount spent.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

The estimated expenditure on pay for police officers in forces in England and Wales for 1975–76 was £346,722,000. The provisional figure for actual expenditure is £412,033,000. The difference between the two figures reflects a combination of growth in numbers and the effect of the September 1975 pay award.
