HC Deb 11 March 1948 vol 448 c1420
81. Mr. J. Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether in view of the shortage of metropolitan police he will consider the temporary employment of police pensioners in stations and stores so as to release younger men for street duty.

Mr. Ede

A number of re-engaged police pensioners, war-disabled men and civilian women clerks are already employed to release able-bodied men for street duties.
