38. Sir G. Fox

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the number of police who have been shot or wounded on duty in the Metropolitan area in the last six months; and in how many cases the assailant has been captured or is believed known to the police.

Mr. Ede

Shots were fired at four members of the force, one of whom was not injured. The assailant in this case escaped and his identity is not known to the police, but the others were all captured.
