HC Deb 12 April 1934 vol 288 cc491-2
23. Mr. TINKER (for Mr. KIRK-WOOD)

asked the Home Secretary what number of police officers of all grades have been retired, dismissed, or discharged for offences of various kinds in the past 18 months and the general nature or character of these offences?


During the year ending 29th September, 1933, to which the available figures relate, 61 members of police forces in England and Wales were dismissed on disciplinary charges and 77 were required to resign as an alternative to dismissal. For the previous year the corresponding figures were 39 and 83. In all cases the offences would be serious offences against dis- cipline as laid down in the Discipline Code appended to the Police Regulations.
