HC Deb 16 October 1968 vol 770 c134W
Sir G. de Freitas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will call for a report from the Chief Constable on the reasons why Corby, Northants, has been demoted from being the headquarters of a police division.

Mr. Elystan Morgan

My right hon. Friend has advised police authorities and chief constables that divisional boundaries should be reviewed with the object, where appropriate, of enlarging the size of divisions. In pursuance of this policy, the former Corby and Kettering divisions have been combined to form one large division. Kettering was chosen as the headquarters of the new division.
