At a meeting yesterday with PSNI in Belfast, Ian Rennie and I made it clear that officers undertaking mutual aid at the G8 summit must be paid in accordance with current Regulations and Determinations. Message from Chairman of PFEW, Steve Williams: There remains a lack of clarity about this from the PSNI, and in turn ACPO and the Home Office, and we are seeking to reach a swift confirmation from them in the coming days. I will keep you updated as to any developments but PFEW has been clear that we do not expect anything more than what our officers are rightly entitled to and that their entitlements must be upheld.
For those of you deploying to G8 please find attached the latest G8 newsletter.
