HC Deb 07 May 1987 vol 115 c509W
8. Mr. George

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the annual report of the chief constable of the west midlands police for 1986.

Mr. Hurd

I was pleased to receive the chief constable's report, in which he records that 1986 was a year of considerable change, major problems, and some notable successes in many areas of the force's work. I am glad to see that the chief constable concludes that the west midlands police are in good heart with a high morale despite the daunting range of tasks that confronts them.
