HC Deb 05 July 1938 vol 338 c164
10. Mr. Kennedy

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has received any recent communications from the Zetland County Council and the Lerwick Town Council regarding the reorganisation of the county and burgh police forces following the extension of the Lerwick burgh boundaries; and whether any progress has been made in the county of Zetland towards the adoption of the Police Acts?

Mr. Colville

I have received intimation from the county council and the town council that they have been considering the amalgamation of their police forces and the application of the Police Acts to Zetland. In response to a suggestion made by them, I am arranging for His Majesty's Inspector of Constabulary for Scotland to visit Zetland with a view to local consultations and to reporting on the matter.
