§ Sir R. NEWMAN
asked the Home Secretary how mar y city and borough police forces there are in England who have no full-time police matron in their police force; and whether in those cases he is satisfied with the arrangements made for the searching and supervision of female prisoners"
§ Captain HACKING
On 29th September, 1926, the latest date for which details are available, there were in England and Wales 77 city and borough police forces where full-time police matrons are not employed. In all these cases, however, arrangements are made for matrons or police women to be called when neces- 873W sary. On the information at present before him, my right hon. Friend sees no ground for considering these arrangements unsatisfactory.
