§ 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.
