To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will publish a table showing the(a) number and (b) percentage of (i) men and (ii) women at each level in the police forces in England and Wales at the latest available date.

Mr. Maclean

At the end of August 1994 there were 49 chief officers in the police service covering England and Wales, all of whom were men. Tables showing the distribution of men and women in all the other ranks in each force, including those on central service and with regional crime squads, have been placed in the Library of the House.
