HC Deb 05 July 1971 vol 820 c293W
Mr. Clinton Davis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the cost of the police recruiting campaigns for the years 1965 to 1970, inclusive.

Mr. Sharples

The cost of the central campaigns for England and Wales was:

1965–66 320,906
1966–67 305,330
1967–68 261,815
1968–69 161,374
1969–70 384,254
1970–71 586,602

In addition, some money was spent centrally on recruiting material; and police authorities incurred expenditure, of which I do not have details, on local recruiting campaigns.
