HC Deb 21 November 1939 vol 353 c1023
93. Mr. Levy

asked the Home Secretary whether it is intended to appoint a senior regional commissioner for the London region; if so, why has the appointment been delayed; and can he now give the name of this official?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Home Security (Mr. Mabane)

My right hon. Friend has no such proposal under consideration at the present time.

Sir T. Moore

Why has not my right hon. Friend solved this problem by appointing one of the most outstanding figures of the country, Admiral Sir Reginald Evans of the Broke, who is at present joint regional commissioner, to act as the senior regional commissioner?
