§ 31. Sir HARRY BRITTAIN
asked the Home Secretary whether, following the experiments recently made for providing the police on point duty with white sleeves, he will try an experiment with white gauntlets, as being equally effective 1490 and more comfortable throughout summer as well as winter far the officers who are wearing them?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The possibility of using gauntlets has not been overlooked; but they are open to objections and slip-on half sleeves were considered preferable for the present experiment.
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that his conclusions do not coincide with those of the constables so affected?
Captain A. EVANS
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that experiments have been carried out with great success for the past 18 months in the city of Leicester?
