HC Deb 12 May 1977 vol 931 c557W
10. Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland to what extent the Ulster Defence Regiment and the Royal Ulster Constabulary share common training procedures.

Mr. Dunn

The two forces differ in both nature and rôle, and the training that is appropriate for military forces is not necessarily equally appropriate for the police. What is important is that the operational activities of the two forces are closely co-ordinated, and this is already the case.
