§ MR. HEYWOOD JOHNSTONE
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether summer clothing will be issued to the Metropolitan Police during the present month, and if some lighter form of helmet or headgear could be issued to those on duty indoors?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir M. WHITE RIDLEY,) Lancashire, Blackpool
Summer clothing has already been issued and taken into wear. New helmets which are lighter than the old pattern, and the lightest it is possible to get consistently with being serviceable, were issued last year.
