§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will call for a report from the chief constable of the West Midlands police as to the extent of his plans to mark police vans with special numbers in line with the policy to be adopted by the Metropolitan police.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
We have noted the Commissioner's plans to mark certain vehicles to allow them to be identified more easily. We intend drawing this practice to the attention of the Association of Chief Police Officers so that they may consider whether it could be of assistance in other police areas.
