HC Deb 13 July 1982 vol 27 c323W
Mr. Tilley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department which police authorities have implemented Lord Scarman's recommendation that police recruit training should be extended to a minimum of six months.

Mr. Mayhew

Lord Scarman's recommendations on police recruit training are being actively examined by the Police Training Council. Although changes in this training are being developed in some police forces we expect the main improvements to take place when the council has finished this work.
