Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill — Parliamentary oversight of police and prison service pay — 30 Apr 2008 at 18:39

The majority of the House of Lords voted to insert a new clause[1] into the Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill[2], which said:

  • The Home Secretary may not make regulations under the Police Act 1996[3] that differ from the recommendations of the Police Negotiation Board, or regulations under the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994[4] that differ from the recommendations of Prison Service Pay Review Board, unless they have been put to a vote by MPs.

This proposed law was later deleted in the House of Commons.[5]
