HC Deb 13 December 1945 vol 417 cc767-8W
Mr. Janner

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will consider the formation of volunteer patrols of Home Guards and former CD.workers as an additional protection for the public until the police have been sufficiently strengthened to deal with the present outbreak of crime with violence.

Mr. Ede

No, Sir. If an emergency arose calling for the reinforcement of the police they would look to the Special Constabulary.
