§ Mr. K. Robinson
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what increase has taken place in recent months in the number of police attached to Cannon Row Police Station; and what increase in strength there has been over the same period in the Metropolitan 33W Police area as a whole, excluding the City of Westminster.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
Since 1st January, 1957, the increase in the strength of the Metropolitan Police, excluding the City of Westminster, has been a little less than 300. An exact estimate cannot be given as the area of the City does not coincide with that of a Police Division. During the same period the number of officers attached to Cannon Row Police Station has increased by 39.
