HC Deb 31 January 1985 vol 72 c245W
74. Mr. Eldon Griffiths

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on future arrangements for police rent allowance.

Mr. Giles Shaw

The police arbitration tribunal recommended that the existing arrangements for calculating rent allowances should remain unchanged. My right hon. and learned Friend has accepted that recommendation. Under the Police Regulations, he has to approve force maximum limits, and he has thought it right to advise police authorities of the considerations which should be taken into account before giving approval.
