HC Deb 26 April 1955 vol 540 c750
25. Sir E. Errington

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will extend his Circular 24/55, of 8th March, 1955, relating to the housing of ex-Service men, to the case of ex-police officers.

Mr. Deedes

No, Sir. It is better to tackle one problem at a time.

Sir E. Errington

Is my hon. Friend aware that in the case of an ex-sergeant of police, of whom I have informed him, neither the Home Secretary, the appropriate constabulary nor the local authority is prepared to find accommodation for him and his wife and three children, except in an institution?

Mr. Deedes

The most helpful thing would be if my right hon. Friend or I were to make inquiries in this case, which, in consultation with my right hon. Friend, I am quite willing to do.
