§ 36. Mr. POTTER
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the increase in the number of serious offences against the person and property shown by the official return of Criminal Statistics for England and Wales in 1930, he will cause an inquiry to be instituted concerning the adequacy of our police forces throughout the country to deal with these matters?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir Herbert Samuel)
The strength of the police forces in England and Wales is constantly wader review by His Majesty's Inspectors of Constabulary and in my Department, and I do not think that a special inquiry would serve a useful purpose at the present time.
