§ 26. Mr. Latham
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will make a statement on his recent official visit to the annual conference of the Police Federation.
§ Mr. Brittan
I addressed the annual conference of the Police Federation on 15 May and responded to a speech by its chairman. I took note of what he said, particularly about resources, manpower and some aspects of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act, although I did not accept that all the anxieties expressed were well-founded.
