HC Deb 11 December 1922 vol 159 cc2404-5W

asked the Home Secretary whether he has received a communication from the Medical Women's Federation, urging and stating reasons for the continued employment of the women police; whether he is aware that they have accomplished much in the prevention of crime and disease; and whether, in view of the feeling that is developing all over the country of the urgent need of women police, he will make a statement on the subject before the House rises?


I am giving careful consideration to this question, and if I am in a position to make a statement before the House rise, I shall be glad to do so.
