HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 cc169-70W
Mr. G. H. R. Rogers

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many flag day collections are now authorised in London by the Metropolitan Police each year.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The number of collections authorised in 1956, 1957, 1958 and 1959 was 22, 19, 18 and 19 respectively, and it is expected that about the same number will be authorised in 1960. In addition, a number of local collections have taken place during the period in each year allotted for this purpose.
