§ 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 12W 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.
