To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what his most recent estimate is of the costs of training a police constable in the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI); and what the starting salary is for a police constable in the PSNI. (197273)

I am advised that the estimated cost of training a police constable in the Police Service of Northern Ireland, taking account of the cost of the student officer’s gross salary, is £33,564.

The starting salary of a Constable (Student Officer) in the Police Service of Northern Ireland is £21,534, rising to £24,039 on attestation.
