asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what are the hourly rates of pay for RUC constables, full-time reserve constables and part-time reserve constables, respectively.

The current hourly rate of pay—excluding allowances—for an RUC constable is £1·15 in the first year of service, increasing over an eight-point scale to £1·63 after 15 years of service. Full-time members of the RUC Reserve are paid between £1·15 to £1·39 per hour, in accordance with the first four points of the scale for a constable in the regular force. Part-time members of the Reserve receive an annual bounty of £24 for a minimum of four hours' duty each month and 91p for each additional hour of duty.
