HC Deb 15 May 1968 vol 764 c264W
Mr. Edward M. Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what further steps he is now taking to improve the police manpower situation.

Mr. Buchan

In the four months ended 30th April, total manpower available to the police has gone up by 210 of whom 109 are police officers. My right hon. Friend has the situation constantly under review but the first essential is to make the most effective use of available manpower.
