§ 51. Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress has been made in supplying personal radio sets for policemen on patrol.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
Over 800 pocket wireless sets purchased last year are now in operation in 71 forces; another 200130W sets are available for use as soon as local construction and installation is complete. I have decided to increase the purchase of sets in the current year to 3,000 and I shall shortly be ordering a further 5,000 sets for delivery in 1967–68. In addition, some 750 pocket sets have been separately provided for four forces and more are on order; substantial numbers of pack sets are also being used by policemen on patrol.
