Scotland's Police Staffing At Higher Levels Than In England

"Thanks to a parliamentary question last Wednesday, we can see that police staffing is more than 50% higher than in England & Wales. Prison staffing is nearly 18% higher. Some, of course, will say this is Scotland being subsidised by the UK when it is really the effect of different policies. England & Wales would be better staffed if Tory decision-makers valued their constituents more than the affluent few, like their backers and themselves."
