HC Deb 03 May 1990 vol 171 c669W
Mr. Shersby

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he is taking to replace the police initial recruitment examinations; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

In February this year the Police Advisory Board standing committee on conditions of service agreed that a new initial recruitment test should be prepared. We hope shortly to be inviting tenders for a contract to devise the new test.
