§ 54. Mr. Simon Mahon
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will obtain a report from the chief constable on what immediate steps will be taken to increase the effective strength of the Liverpool and Bootle police force; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Shirley Williams
The chief constable informs me that he is taking active steps to secure recruits by means of a vigorous local recruiting campaign, which is complementary to the national campaign.
