HC Deb 26 October 1944 vol 404 cc332-3
23. Mrs. Adamson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the increasing number of policewomen and women police auxili- aries, he has now decided to appoint to the staff of the Home Office a suitable woman to assist His Majesty's Inspectors of Constabulary in dealing with matters relating to women police.

Mr. H. Morrison

Yes, Sir. I have decided to make such an appointment. But candidates with suitable qualifications for the appointment are not easy to find and I am not yet in a position to make an announcement.

Mrs. Adamson

Does the Home Secretary agree that there is recognition by this appointment of the importance of women police?
