§ 16. Mr. HACKING
asked the Home Secretary whether he contemplates any reorganisation of the motor patrol service in the Metropolitan area?
§ Mr. HACKING
In view of the large number of accidents which take place in the patrol service, is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied that these drivers have sufficient experience before they are taken on?
§ Mr. CLYNES
Yes, there is a very severe test before they are recruited or employed. As I have informed the House in previous answers, most of these accidents are very trivial, and we have not yet had enough experience to consider any question of reorganisation.
§ Mr. MARLEY
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that certain of these members passed the test after only two weeks in a driving school?
§ Sir W. BRASS
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider giving instructions to these police, especially at corners, to watch for dangerous passing?
