HC Deb 03 March 1983 vol 38 c182W
26. Mr. Madel

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he has received any further request from the Bedfordshire police authority to increase the size of the Bedfordshire police force; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Whitelaw

No applications for a further increase in the authorised establishment of Bedfordshire constabulary has been received since an increase of five posts was approved in August 1982.
