HC Deb 09 February 1979 vol 962 c317W
Mr. George Gardiner

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many days were lost by Metropolitan Police officers through injuries received through assaults on crowd control duties in 1978, or the latest period of 1978 for which information is available.

Dr. Summerskill

The information requested is not held separately from records of police officers absent through sickness or injured in the course of other types of duty, and could not be extracted without disproportionate cost.
