HC Deb 18 March 1959 vol 602 c46W
Mr. A. Evans

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make available to hon. Members or place in the Library of the House the details of the cautioning procedure which he is suggesting should be used by the police in dealing with persons loitering or soliciting for the purposes of prostitution.

Mr. R. A. Butler

My right hon. and learned Friend the Attorney-General described in Standing Committee F on 4th March the procedure which the Commissioner of Police proposes to adopt in the Metropolitan Police District (OFFICIAL REPORT, columns 131–32). The chief constables of a number of provincial forces have already indicated their willingness to adopt this procedure, and I propose to commend it to chief constables generally when the Bill becomes law.
