Police strike threat

Police will demand the right to strike if the Government goes ahead with plans for a radical overhaul of officers’ pay, John Reid, the Home Secretary, was told yesterday.

The warning came as Mr Reid, in his last weeks of the job, found himself facing 1,000 angry leaders of rank and file officers at a Police Federation meeting in Blackpool. The Home Secretary was told that if the Government’s plans were implemented officers would feel they were no different from other public sector workers and wanted the same protection.
