asked the Minister for the Civil Service why the difficulties referred to in his replies of 24th January and 11th March regarding the pay of the 10 Ministry of Defence chief police officers only apply to this small number of officers, all other members of the same force having been accorded pay increases arising from an application made at the same time as the senior officers' claim.

The arrangements for determining pay in the two groups are not the same. The Ministry of Defence chief police officers have their pay determined by a vertical pay relativity with the lower ranks.
