§ Mr. McKelvey
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will call for a report from the chief constable of Strathclyde on details of the police activity on Wednesday 25 March in supporting senior Inland Revenue officials, who were involved in transporting mail affected by Council of Civil Service Unions industrial dispute at Cumbernauld accounts office from the main Post Office in Glasgow to Milton Bridge Army training camp, Edinburgh Road, Penicuik, and in particular on (a) the number of local authority regions involved, (b) the number of police vehicles involved, (c) the number of police personnel involved, and (d) the cost to public funds of the police operation.
§ Mr. Rifkind
I see no need to do so. I understand that the police activity concerned was of the same kind and for the same reasons as set out in my reply to the hon. Member on 26 March about events on 23 March.—[Vol. 1, c.395.]
