§ Mr. Townsend
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what percentage of police cadets in England and Wales, in each of the last five years, went into the police service on the completion of cadet training.
§ Dr. Summerskill
The information is not available in the form requested. The following figures are available, but it should be noted that, since cadets normally serve for more than one year, no direct comparison between intake and numbers attested as constables can be made for any one year.
