Orders of the Day — Rate Support Grant (England) (25 Mar 1987)

Dr Jack Cunningham: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for giving way, especially since he has just given the "average" of the single Tory authority in the metropolitan districts under Conservative control. Is not the real message of what he has said that overwhelmingly in the metropolitan districts in England the Tories have been kicked from office because people do not like their policies?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Metropolitan Police (Recruiting) ( 4 May 1978)

Mr William Molloy: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the trend towards increasing numbers in the Metropolitan Police, small though it is, is very welcome?

Police: Ethnic Minority Officers ( 1 Jul 2008)

Lord Dholakia: My Lords, serious allegations have been made against the Metropolitan Police Commissioner about racial discrimination. Similar allegations have been made against a senior civil servant in the Home Office and against the Metropolitan Police Authority.

Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [HL] - Committee (28 Jun 2016)

Lord Howarth of Newport: My Lords, the noble Baroness has raised a very important point about the resourcing of what I think is called the Arts and Antiques Unit of the Metropolitan Police. It is staffed by the most excellent people but with funding that is derisory. Perhaps the Minister will be able to tell us what the present state of affairs is, but not long ago that unit was actually obliged to raise its own...

Business of the House (27 Oct 1994)

Bridget Prentice: Is the Leader of the House aware that, when the House is prorogued next Thursday, there will have been no opportunity this year for a debate on the Metropolitan police in London? It has been traditional that the Home Secretary has come to the House to debate that subject so that hon. Members who represent London constituencies have the opportunity to ask him about his policy of financing the...

Rate Support Grant Order (15 Dec 1977)

Owen Smith: ...they do not do so, because they accept that it would be unfair and lead to unintended consequences. We saw some such unintended consequences when the police looked into regional pay.

The unintended consequence was that officers transferred in droves...

New Clause: Suspension of Elections and Extension of Terms of Office (30 Jul 1984)

Mr Eric Deakins: I shall be brief. Surely it is unprecedented in the history of Britain for one democratic body to seek to abolish another democratic body, for reasons of pure spite and dislike of the policies pursued by that body. That is particularly true of the Government's attitude to the GLC and is probably also true of their attitude to the metropolitan counties. Not only do the Government object to...

Police (Pay) (19 May 1977)

Mr Merlyn Rees: I understand that, but I do not accept the hon. Member's analogy. I accept that inflation has eroded pay for everyone and that differentials have been altered as a result of a strict pay policy. One of the differences between the Metropolitan Police and police forces in the provinces is that the latter have the problem of very little overtime. On the other hand, the Metropolitan Police get...

Local Government (Successor Parishes) (12 Dec 1973)

Mr Graham Page: .... Members who have spoken because I shall not be able to answer all their points before 11.30. I will do so by writing. The reason for the refusal of parish status to many of the areas within the metropolitan districts and metropolitan counties is the phrase used at the end of paragraph 1 of the guidelines, which says: The Government's further view, as explained in Parliament, is that...
