§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will give for the latest and most convenient date the number of 103W police in the Metropolitan force known to be of ethnic race other than British; which races are concerned; and how these figures compare with the same date for each of the last 10 years.
§ Dr. Summerskill
The number of officers from the ethnic minorities serving in the Metropolitan Police at the end of each year since 1968 was as follows:
1968 3 1969 4 1970 8 1971 11 1972 13 1973 19 1974 36 1975 39 1976 72 1977 82
Information about the particular minority group from which the officers have been drawn is not available.
