HC Deb 24 April 1986 vol 96 c224W
65. Sir John Farr

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the latest situation on the negotiations over prison officers' pay.

Mr. Brooke

There has been one meeting between officials and representatives of the Prison Officers and Scottish Prison Officers Associations to discuss their pay claim. The further progress of negotiations with the Prison Officers Association depends upon the course of its current dispute with the Home Office over the determination of manning levels.
