HC Deb 28 July 1960 vol 627 cc197-8W
Mrs. Butler

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what arrangements he is making for the Commissioner of Police to recruit women traffic wardens in London.

Mr. R. A. Butler

It is for the Commissioner, as the appointing authority for the Metropolitan Police District under Clause 2 of the Road Traffic and Roads Improvement Bill, to decide whether to appoint women as traffic wardens. He has decided not to do so in the first instance.
