§ Mr. Peter Bruinvels
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many police authorities have applied to him for approval of new police building projects; which ones were approved; in which year they are expected to be completed; and at what cost.
§ Mr. Mellor
The process by which major police building schemes are put forward for planning, accepted and then fitted into the rolling building programme, is a continuing one. The range of schemes currently in planning with starts in the years 1983–84 to 1985–86,together with those in planning without start dates—broken down to show how many were added in 1982, when police authorities were last invited to put forward proposals for schemes to be accepted for planning—and those rejected in 1982, is as follows. These figures do not include the Metropolitan police area which has a block allocation and manages its own starts programme.
