HC Deb 01 July 1954 vol 529 c111W
36. Mr. Watkins

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the arrangements that exist or are contemplated with regard to school patrols in the counties of Brecon and Radnor; and whether he will indicate what support is being given by the Mid-Wales police authority for any arrangements.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

Under the School Crossing Patrols Act, 1953, it is for the respective county councils to decide what arrangements, if any, should be made for patrolling school crossings. I am not aware that the Radnorshire County Council contemplates the introduction of any such arrangements; but I understand that the Breconshire County Council is at present discussing a possible scheme with the Mid-Wales police authority.
