HC Deb 26 July 1939 vol 230 c1594W

asked the Home Secretary if he will have consideration given to the posting of a police constable at Lant Street School, in the Borough of Southwark, during the time the children are returning home, in view of the serious risks to the children consequent upon the growth of heavy traffic in that vicinity?


I am informed by the Commissioner that it is not thought necessary to keep a constable posted in Lant Street, where the traffic is very light, but when the scholars are assembling for or dismissed from school a constable is on duty in Great Suffolk Street where the traffic is heavier.
