HC Deb 09 February 1973 vol 850 c197W
Mr. Rees-Davies

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will advise the Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis of the need to set up regional squads to be trained to combat potential violence from militant strikers and others likely to cause a breach of the peace.

Mr. R. Carr

Improved arrangements now exist for mutual aid and co-operation between police forces to help to ensure that sufficient police reinforcements could be deployed quickly to cope with situations of the kind that my hon. Friend has in mind.
