37. Captain A. EVANS (for Mr. TEMPLE MORRIS)
asked the Home Secretary whether he proposes to take any action, in view of the recommendations of his inspectorate of constabulary, in favour of extending to the chief constables of cities and boroughs in England and Wales the necessary powers, as in Scotland, relating to discipline and promotion?
§ Mr. HACKING
Legislation would be needed to alter the present position, and I am not in a position to say more than that the suggestion referred to is receiving my right hon. Friend's attention.
