HC Deb 03 June 1985 vol 80 c20W
Mr. D. E. Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what national exercises requiring co-ordination of police activity would require the reopening of the national reporting centre.

Mr. Giles Shaw

The national reporting centre comes into operation when it is necessary for it to co-ordinate responses to requests for assistance from chief officers of police. The centre has not been opened for the purpose of national training exercises.
