HC Deb 30 January 1978 vol 943 cc11-2W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the level of recruitment to the Cumbria Police Force during the past five years; and how many persons left the force during the same period.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

The figures, which include transfers to and from other forces, are as follows:

Year Joined Left
1973 71 53
1974 to 31st March 11 19
1974 1st April-31st December 70 52
1975 83 59
1976 77 86
1977 62 99

The force area was materially altered on 1st April 1974 following local government reorganisation, and figures before that date are not comparable with later figures.
