HC Deb 22 June 1972 vol 839 cc152-3W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will give the total number of policemen and policewomen, stated ranking officers, coaches, buses and cars, and motor-cyclists, and all police arrangements in operation in and around the Chobham Farm area, Stratford, London E.15, between 12 noon and 5 p.m. on Friday, 16th June; and, taking account of the six hours pay for each police officer and the other costs involved, what was the total expenditure for this exercise.

Mr. Carlisle

One commander, three chief superintendents, three inspectors, six sergeants, 60 constables and three coaches. As the police officers were drawn from those already on duty and no overtime payments were incurred, extra cost arose only from the use of the coaches.
