HC Deb 24 February 1966 vol 725 c133W
52. Mr. Mikardo

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why H Division of the Metropolitan Police is further below establishment than any other; and what action he will take.

Mr. George Thomas

The Commissioner of Police disposes the available strength of his Force in accordance with his assessment from time to time of the needs of the divisions, having regard to the duties to be discharged. Arithmetical uniformity as between one division and another is not to be expected.
