HC Deb 08 July 1965 vol 715 c285W
22. Mr. Tilney

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will now take steps to equip every foot patrol officer of the police authorities with a pocket radio set.

Mr. George Thomas

Trials are proceeding with over 200 pocket wireless sets of four types with a view to designing a set suited to the special needs of the police. In addition, as an interim step to help to meet immediate needs, an order has been placed for 1,000 pocket sets of existing types.
