HC Deb 19 June 1930 vol 240 c597W

asked the Home Secretary whether he has received and considered a report on the employment of women police; will he state his conclusions; and does he propose in the near future to sanction the appointment of women detectives to hold equal rank with men in the Metropolitan area?


I have received no recent report on this question. As regards the Metropolitan Police, the subject is being explored but no decision has yet been reached.
