HC Deb 23 February 1973 vol 851 c229W
Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if the regular technical assistance programme to South Vietnam from the British Government, including training of personnel in the United Kingdom, includes the training of South Vietnamese police officers and public safety experts; and how many have been trained in this country since 1964.

Mr. Wood

Our technical assistance to South Vietnam does include the training of police officers and public safety experts, but only one such officer has been sent here since 1964. This was Colonel Nguyon Van Ve who attended an overseas prison officers' training course at the Wakefield Prison Service Staff College between April and July 1965.
