HC Deb 27 January 1967 vol 739 c392W
Sir J. Gilmour

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in view of the fact that Glasgow police force is more than 10 per cent. under their establishment and that increasing acts of vandalism are taking place in Scotland, highlighted by two particular acts of vandalism in Fife on 22nd January, he will now initiate an inquiry into the manning of police forces in Scotland.

Mr. W. Ross

No. I am, however, proposing to have early discussions with the Police Advisory Board for Scotland on police manpower, operational efficiency and equipment. In these discussions account will, of course, be taken of recent developments including, for example, the reports of the English working parties on these subjects.
