HC Deb 01 November 1938 vol 340 c19
40. Mr. Kelly

asked the Home Secretary the number of section houses to be built or rebuilt for the Metropolitan Police; and how many of these are for the women police?

Sir S. Hoare

As at present proposed, about 30 new section houses will be built and 20 existing section houses reconstructed. For women police three section houses are contemplated; one has already been provided by adaptation of an existing building, one will be a new building and the third will be either a new building or an adapted or reconstructed building.

Mr. Kelly

Will the right hon. Gentleman publish the location of the section houses; and are they being constructed in keeping with the town-planning arrangements of the London County Council?

Sir S. Hoare

I will certainly look into the matter and see what action can be taken. I believe the answer to the second question is in the affirmative, but I will look into it.
