HC Deb 30 July 1937 vol 326 c3499
17. Mr. Day

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what instructions are issued in regard to the relief of police officers performing traffic duty and posted at exposed points in severe weather?

The Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd)

The instructions to the Metropolitan Police are that during extremes of weather, either in summer or winter, constables posted to traffic duty are to be afforded relief by changing duty for at least two hours with constables on adjoining beats, provided that this can be arranged without detriment to the duties. In any special cases when constables are posted to duties which are unusually trying, further relief may be arranged.

Mr. Day

Do we understand that the times of relief are regularised?

Mr. Lloyd

This is a regular instruction.

Colonel Sandeman Allen

Are arrangements made for the relief of Ministers on day duty?
