§ 26. Mr. Moonman
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give details in the Official Report of the total cost and the numbers of police concerned on security duty in connection with the visit to Great Britain of Mr. Alexander Shelepin; what discussions took place with the TUC on the security 438W aspect of the visit; and what advice he gave them.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
Up to about 500 police officers were employed at any one time on all duties in connection with the visit. It would involve considerable work to estimate the additional cost to which the deployment of officers who would not otherwise have been on duty gave rise. The police discussed the details of the programme with representatives of the TUC in London and Glasgow. I had no contact with the TUC on this matter.
