§ 2. Earl Winterton
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the total deficiency between the numbers in the forces and the establishment of the county and borough police forces in England and Wales.
§ Mrs. Braddock
Has the attention of the Home Secretary been called to the comments made by the chief constables of East Suffolk and Wallasey, which, I understand, are supported by about 50 per cent. of the chief constables, on the very low standard of the recruits who apply to be taken into the police force? If so, what action does he intend to take to deal with this problem?
