HC Deb 21 November 1946 vol 430 c1007
77. Mr. S. O. Davies

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he proposes to remove the prohibition that precludes members of the police force from forming, should they so desire, a trade union.

Mr. Ede

The prohibition was imposed by me Police Act of 1919. No proposal for the amendment of the law in this respect has been made to me by the Police Federation.
