§ Mr. Shersby
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) what estimates he has made of the effect on operational police strengths arising from the detachment of police officers for retraining following the passage of(a) the Road Traffic Bill and (b) the Criminal Justice Bill;
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
My right hon. Friend expects that any retraining of police officers as a consequence of the legislation will be on a limited scale and will not affect operational policing.
