HC Deb 22 December 1983 vol 51 cc338-9W
Mr. Park

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many police cadets are currently serving in the west midlands force; and what are the proposed number of places in 1984 and 1985.

Mr. Hurd

There were 72 police cadets in the west midlands police at the end of November 1983. Under section 17(1) of the Police Act 1964, police authorities are responsible for approving the number of police cadets appointed in each force in England and Wales, and information about recruitment plans is not available centrally.
