§ Mr. Caborn
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give the number of additional uniformed police officers, excluding special constables, that have been authorised to be added to the strength of the North Yorkshire police in each year from 1975 to 1991.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
It is not possible to distinguish between increases in uniformed and non-uniformed police officers as such information is not held centrally. The establishment of the North Yorkshire police has been increased by the following amounts between 1975 and 1990:
Year Police posts 1975 111 1979 40 1989 15 1990 25 1991 6
The police authority did not request establishment increases in the years 1980–81 to 1987–88 inclusive.
