HC Deb 25 October 1960 vol 627 c255W
68. Sir J. Duncan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he is taking to reduce the wastage of whole-time police in the police forces in Scotland, particularly those who resign with less than 10 years' service, as disclosed by the Report of the Inspector of Constabulary for Scotland for 1959; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. N. Macpherson

Before deciding whether any additional steps should be taken to deal with the wastage of whole-time police officers, my right hon. Friend proposes to await the interim report of the Royal Commission on the Police, which is expected before the end of the year.
