HC Deb 02 February 1967 vol 740 cc155-6W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many policemen have been killed on active duty in the last five years; and of these how many were murdered.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

Eleven officers in England and Wales were killed on duty in 1965 and eleven in 1966. Of these, two were murdered in 1965, and four in 1966 (including three in the Shepherds Bush shooting). National figures for police officers killed on duty were not compiled before 1965.
