Steve White, Vice-Chair, PFEW, says: “Officers around the country will be livid and dismayed that having been promised fair treatment by this government, clearly MPs appear to be treated more favourably than others. “This government is ruthlessly pursuing reforms to the public sector at breakneck speed and yet seems content for a review of their own pay and conditions to happen at a leisurely pace.”
Following on from the announcement made by Chair Steve Williams in December that the Police Federation will be independently reviewed, we are pleased to announce that Sir David Normington GCB has agreed to chair the panel. Sir David is highly respected for his achievements in public service at the most senior levels. Former Home Office Permanent Secretary, most recently he has become the First Civil Service Commissioner and Commissioner for Public Appointments.
For those of you who are in the Group Insurance Scheme, could I please ask that you inform West Mids Fed HQ of any change of circumstances or change of address.
