HC Deb 18 November 1947 vol 444 cc971-2
32. Mr. William Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is satisfied that the Symington-Dundonald-Loans area of Ayrshire is adequately policed; and the police adequately equipped for mobility.

Mr. Woodburn

I am informed that the Loans area is policed from the burgh of Troon, and the Symington-Dundonald area by two constables stationed near Symington, supplemented by motor patrols. I have no evidence that the present policing of the area, or the mobility of the police, is inadequate.

Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore

Is the Minister aware that quality makes up for lack of quantity in this case?
