§ 12. Mr. POTTER (for Major JESSON)
asked the Home Secretary whether he will furnish the House with a return of the total strength of the Northumberland County Police Force and with a return of the number of dismissals, rank reductions, and voluntary resignations in that force during the last two years?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
The authorised strength of the Northumberland County Constabulary is 331 of all ranks. The Chief Constable informs me that during the last two years one man has been dismissed, three were required to resign, and two resigned voluntarily; and that there were no cases of reduction in rank.
