§ Mr. Dobson
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give the average total cost per police officer employed in each police force.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
Actual expenditure per police officer in each police force in England and Wales for the financial year 1984–85 is given in column 47 of "Police Statistics 1984–85 Actuals" published in November 1985 by CIPFA (the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy, 1 Buckingham Gate, London, SW1E 6HS). I understand that "Police Statistics 1985–86 Actuals", giving this kind of information for the financial year 1985–86, are expected to be published at the end of January 1987.
