HC Deb 19 April 1926 vol 194 cc854-5

d the Secretary of State for the Home Department the total number of officers of the Metropolitan police engaged on point duty and other duties concerned with the regulation and control of traffic; whether he has information as to the similar numbers engaged in other parts of the country through the reports of the inspectors of constabulary; and, if so, what are the figures?


In the Metropolitan Police area the number of men so engaged is about 1,300, though it varies from time to time. I have no corresponding information as regards the county and borough police forces.
