§ 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.
