§ 6. Major JESSON
asked the Home Secretary whether he will introduce legislation whereby all appointments, promotions, punishments, and transfers of men by the chief constable of a county police force shall be sumbitted by him to a standing joint committee for confirmation?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
No, Sir. I should not be prepared to propose to Parliament any change of that kind.
§ Major JESSON
Does not the right hon. Gentleman consider that if there were some kind of supervision over the decisions and judgments of chief constables it would lead to a greater feeling of security in the rank and file of the police, and would do away with any suggestion of favouritism or victimisation?
