asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many police surgeons there are in each of the Scottish police forces; and of these how many are male.
I understand that the numbers of police surgeons presently employed or retained by each police authority are as follows :
|Dumfries and Galloway||1||—||1|
|Lothian and Borders||9||1||10|
|1 Other doctors are available on a payment for call-out basis.|
|2 The breakdown by sex is approximate.|
