§ Mr. Dobson
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the average hourly rate of pay for a police constable in the Metropolitan police.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
I understand from the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis that the average basic pay of a police constable in the Metropolitan police is £6.28 an hour. This includes London weighting and London allowance but not overtime payments or rent or other allowances.
