§ Mr. Brocklebank-Fowler
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is satisfied that the police manpower demands imposed on the Norfolk county constabulary by royal security requirements can be met without adverse consequences for the general level of police cover in Norfolk; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Mayhew
The general level of police cover in Norfolk is a matter for the police authority in the first instance. It is reponsible for maintaining an adequate force and for determining the level of the police establishment, subject to my right hon. Friend's approval. He has received no application from Norfolk for his approval to an increase in the force establishment.
