HC Deb 29 July 1938 vol 338 cc3511-2W
Mr. McEntee

asked the Home Secretary how many police houses for married men in the Metropolitan police district have been condemned as unfit for habitation,-and how many have been similarly condemned in the provinces; and what steps he is taking in the matter?

Sir S. Hoare

No houses owned by the Receiver for the Metropolitan Police District as houses for married men have been condemned by a housing authority. As regards accommodation provided by County and Borough Police Authorities I can only say that these authorities generally are alive to the importance of a proper standard in accordance with modern requirements and of recent years many authorities have been active in this matter. The question is one of the matters to which His Majesty's Inspectors of Constabulary give attention.
