To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received about the pay and conditions of police officers living in police houses.

We have recently received a large number of representations from police officers, from hon. Members on behalf of police officers and from police representative organisations. These refer, in particular, to the Police (Amendment) Regulations 1990 and a proportion concern the position of officers living in provided accommodation. In response we have explained the reasons for setting aside certain aspects of the police negotiating board agreement on rent allowance. My right hon. and learned Friend has also made a number of important changes to the original proposals to meet points which were raised.
