§ 7. Mr. Austin
asked the Minister of Health whether he will consult with local authorities with a view to accelerating the provision of houses for police officers.
§ Mr. Austin
Will my right hon. Friend regard as one of the effects which must arise today the critical position in regard to crime figures and the difficulty in police recruiting?
§ Captain John Crowder
Has the right hon. Gentleman given any orders, or directions, to local authorities to give priority to married policemen who have no houses in which to live?
§ Mr. Lipson
Are these houses intended for police officers in addition to the allocation made to local authorities at the zonal conference? If not, would the right hon. Gentleman agree that they should be additional?
