HC Deb 07 April 1987 vol 114 c127W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will state the location of manned police stations (a) closed down and (b) opened, on Merseyside, since 1970.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

I understand from the chief constable that, since 1974 when the Merseyside police was formed, one new manned police station, at Copy lane, Bootle, has been opened. No police stations have been closed except for the purpose of replacement by a new station.
