Nick Thomas-Symonds – 2021 Comments on Police Pay Settlement

The comments made by Nick Thomas-Symonds, the Shadow Home Secretary, on 23 July 2021.

The pressure is now overwhelming for the Home Secretary to listen and change course on the disastrous and insulting decision to award our police with a zero percent pay award.

If the Home Secretary would show even a fraction of the bravery we see from so many police officers, she would stand up for them around the Cabinet table and secure a fair pay deal. Yet instead we see a Conservative Government that has let down our police and lost their confidence.
