To ask the Secretary for Scotland if he will state the nature of the intricate questions as regards the reasonable amount of advance proposed by the Dundee City Council to be given to the policemen of that city; what are the rates of pay of similar police forces as compared with Dundee; and what is the amount of advance approved by the Department.

Questions involving increase of pay have to be considered in the light of the pay and advantages enjoyed by other forces in a more or less similar position. The advance recently accorded to the Dundee Police place them in a position of equality with the best paid forces outside those of Edinburgh, Glasgow, and the immediate vicinity of these towns. If the hon. Member desires further particulars I shall be happy to supply them for his personal information.
