Commenting on news that Police Scotland's six assistant chiefAlison McInnesAlison McInnes constables are to receive pay rises of more than £10,000 a year, Scottish Liberal Democrat justice spokesperson Alison McInnes MSP said:

"These secret pay rises are particularly surprising given the backdrop of police station closures, civilian staff cuts and the quest for the SNP's planned savings. The new single force is not even a year in the making and the powers that be are hiking up the already considerable pay awarded to Police Scotland's Assistant Chief Constables. This premature and permanent bonus to the top of the force seems like a sure-fire way to knock the morale of those working on the ground to deliver the SNP's unrealistic savings. "
