HC Deb 16 April 1973 vol 855 c46W
Mr. Russell Johnston

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much was spent last year on advertising police recruitment schemes in England and Wales.

Mr. Carlisle

Final figures for 1972–73 for England and Wales are not yet available but expenditure is forecast to be of the order of £600,000. In addition some money is spent centrally on recruiting material, and police authorities incur expenditure, of which I do not have details, on local recruitment campaigns.
