§ 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.
