HC Deb 17 February 1993 vol 219 c229W
Mr. Llwyd

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many representations he has received relating to the establishment figure for the north Wales police; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Charles Wardle

My right hon. and learned Friend has received in the last 12 months six letters from hon. Members. My right hon. and noble Friend met a delegation last June to hear views about policing in Anglesey.

The establishment of the North Wales police was increased in April 1992 by 17 officers, bringing the establishment of the force up to 1,369. In common with other forces, North Wales has not had an increase approved for 1993–94.
