§ 69. Mr. Touche
asked the Home Secretary whether he is now in a position to make a statement regarding the schemes he is considering for the amalgamation of police forces under the Defence Regulations?
§ Mr. Craven-Ellis
Is not the announcement which has been made in "The Times" regarding the amalgamation of police forces considered to be inconsistent with the statement made by the Home Secretary in this House on 14th October?
§ Mr. Hutchinson
Is it the intention of the Home Secretary to consult the local authorities who are concerned in this matter?
