holding answer 21 June 2012

A two-year freeze of incremental progression was among the recommendations made by the Police Arbitration Tribunal (PAT) in January. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Home Department considered the tribunal's findings very carefully, in line with her statutory responsibilities. She announced on 30 January that she had decided to accept the PAT's recommendation. I refer the hon. Member to her statement of 30 January 2012, Hansard, column 31WS.
