§ 35. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Home Secretary whether every member of the Metropolitan Police Force has yet been provided with white overalls or white gloves to assist him in the regulation of traffic at night?
White gloves are already in use by police performing traffic duty in the inner divisions of the Metropolitan Police District, and arrangements have been made to extend the issue to men so engaged in the outer divisions. White overalls are not used.
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that three months ago he promised that this should be done at once, and that several of these police 2390 stations have only one pair of white gloves, and are entirely gloveless when that odd pair goes to the wash?
§ Viscount CURZON
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that no less than 78 city and borough authorities throughout the country already put their police forces into white overalls, and why cannot he do the same?
