Mr. Alan Williams
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to his answer of 22 February,Official Report, column 430, from which police authorities the 19 police officers retired.
§ Mr. Charles Wardle
My answer of 22 February contained an inaccuracy, for which I apologise. The number of police officers who had retired after disciplinary charges had been brought against them, but before those charges had been heard should have been given as 18, not 19. The police authorities from which the 18 officers retired in 1991 are set down in the table:
Number Cambridgeshire 3 Durham 1 Gloucestershire 1 Lancashire 2 Merseyside 1 Northumbria 1 South Wales 3 Surrey 1 Sussex 2 Thames Valley 2 West Midlands 1 Total 18
