HC Deb 25 July 1986 vol 102 c545W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will publish the figures for early retirement through ill-health in ratio to force numbers for the police forces in Manchester, West Yorkshire, and Humberside for the latest available three years.

Mr. Giles Shaw

I understand from the chief constables of Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire and Humberside that the numbers of ill-health retirements during the last three years, in ratio to the authorised establishments on 31 December of each year, are as follows:

Ratio of ill-health retirements to the authorised establishment
1983 1984 1985
Greater Manchester 1:124 1:61 1:53
West Yorkshire 1:126 1:87 1:95
Humberside 1:247 1:99 1:79
