The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Lieut.-Colonel Sir Vivian Henderson)
As my right hon. Friend informed the hon. Member on 15th March, the matter is still under consideration.
Is it not true that the circular sent out by the Home Secretary to encourage local authorities to have an increased number of women police, simply had the effect of discouraging them, and will he realise that they are long overdue and hurry up and make up his mind.
