Police Stations

Volume 488: debated on Monday 23 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if she will make it her policy to require police authorities to publish the number of police stations in their area and their opening times. (256128)

I do not intend to require police authorities to publish such information; this is a matter for individual police authorities.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many police stations there are in England and Wales. (257073)

The information requested is not held centrally. The management of the police estate and allocation of resources are matters for the police authority and chief constable for each force, who are responsible for assessing local needs.
