HC Deb 05 August 1965 vol 717 c392W
Mr. Grant

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give the number of candidates with General Certificate of Education A level who were recruited into each of the police forces of England and Wales in each of the last five years.

Mr. George Thomas

The number of recruits with two or more "A" levels who entered recruit training centres in England and Wales was 95 in 1962; 90 in 1963; and 103 in 1964. Figures are not available for each force or for earlier years, and my right hon. and learned Friend would not feel justified in asking for a special return.
