Willott to Lend Support to South Wales Police in Pay Dispute

January 22, 2008 12:02 AM

Tomorrow, Jenny Willott MP will be meeting with members of South Wales Police to lend her support to their campaign for a fair and just pay settlement. A large lobby from the Police Federation will be carrying out a protest march and rally outside Parliament over the Government's recent pay offer.

Jenny has also signed two Early Day Motions in Parliament in support of the Police's position.

Commenting in advance, Jenny said:

"As far as I am concerned, this is an open and shut case. The Government has clearly broken its promise to the police.

"South Wales Police work tirelessly to tackle crime and bring safety to our streets. Since they are not allowed to strike, then it is only right that the Government gives them the respect they deserve by abiding by the decision of the Police Arbitration Tribunal.

"The decision of the Tribunal should be equally binding on both sides."
