HC Deb 13 April 1943 vol 388 cc1061-2
75. Mr. Thorne

asked the Home Secretary whether it will be possible for police officers at present serving in the Forces to return to their respective police forces in their previous ranks?

Miss Wilkinson

I assume that my hon. Friend has in mind men returning to the Police Service on demobilisation or discharge. Provided that a man is physically fit, and has not been guilty of mis- conduct rendering him unfit to be a policeman my right hon. Friend does not anticipate any difficulty in his being reinstated in his previous rank.
