§ Mrs. Ray Michie
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many police officers in tied housing by district in Scotland will have to pay the personal community charge.
§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
[holding reply 14 February 1989]: All police officers, whether or not they occupy accommodation provided by the police authority, will have a statutory liability to pay the personal community charge. On 31 December the total number of officers occupying accommodation provided by police authorities in Scotland was 2,169; the information held centrally does not provide a breakdown by district.
