HC Deb 03 March 1947 vol 434 cc21-2W
Mr. Naylor

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if his attention has been drawn to the recent publication in the Press of photographs of Detective-Sergeant Mary Law, in spite of the official view that the identity of members of the Women's Police Force should be kept as secret as possible; and what steps he is taking to protect policewomen from this undesirable practice.

Mr. Ede

I am not aware of any official view to the effect suggested. This photograph was published with the consent of the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis.
