§ 26. Mr. J. C. Maude
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what decision has now been reached regarding the recommendations in Part II of the Oaksey Report with regard to the housing need of the Metropolitan Police; and what steps have been taken to implement recommendations, numbers xxix to xxxvi inclusive.
§ Mr. Ede
The Report called for more rapid provision of police dwellings and more assistance from housing authorities. There have been special difficulties in providing police dwellings in London, but it has recently been possible to improve considerably the rate at which the construction of new quarters is being put in hand. My right hon. Friend the Minister of Health has asked housing authorities to give sympathetic consideration to the recommendations of the Committee.
§ 33. Mr. Parker
