HC Deb 30 July 1982 vol 28 c773W
Mrs. Dunwoody

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the total cost of the 10.3 per cent. pay offer to the police force.

Mr. Whitelaw

Negotiations on this year's pay settlement for the police have not yet begun and so no pay offer has been made. The estimated annual cost in England and Wales of a 10.3 per cent. pay settlement is £124.6 million.
