HC Deb 12 February 1990 vol 167 c72W
Dr. Godman

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will ask the chief constables for reports detailing the cost per policeman of deploying police officers on ambulance duties within their spheres of authority.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

The Association of Chief Police Officers (Scotland) is currently considering the basis on which forces should cost the assistance given in relation to the ambulance dispute and in the light of draft guidance prepared by the Scottish Home and Health Department which reflects previously agreed practice.
