§ Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe
Whilst I do not accept the word "only" in the last part of this Question, I agree that it is of first importance to obtain enough recruits for the police, and I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer which I gave on 3rd March to a Question by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for South Shields (Mr. Ede).
