HC Deb 18 December 2001 vol 377 c238W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the number of occasions on which private minibuses have been hired for police patrol purposes; and what assessment he has made of the cost compared with that of using police vehicles. [18908]

Mr. Denham
