HC Deb 04 April 1922 vol 152 cc2015-6
42. Viscount CURZON

asked the Home Secretary whether, in all police stations in the Metropolitan Police area, there are employed matrons to whom female prisoners can appeal for advice and assistance; and, if not, will he consider the advisability of making such appointments?


Matrons are employed at all the police stations. Permanent matrons are employed at the busier stations, and at the others, where the number of female prisoners is too small to justify the appointment of a permanent matron, a temporary matron is employed as and when required.
