§ Mr. Cartwright
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the average number of hours worked each week by police officers for each police authority; and what is the average number of hours overtime worked each week by police officers for each police authority.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
Federated ranks in the police service are required to work eight hours per day with two rest days in seven. Information on the number of hours worked by police officers and the number of hours overtime worked by police officers is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
