HC Deb 05 December 1995 vol 268 c206W
Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which police forces have dispensed with their underwater search and recovery units. [3377]

Mr. Maclean

I understand that Cheshire constabulary, North Wales police, Merseyside police and Greater Manchester police have amalgamated their resources to form a single regional unit and that the Cleveland constabulary and the Gloucestershire constabulary made arrangements with neighbouring forces or private contractors.
