HC Deb 14 March 1963 vol 673 c192W
Mr. G. R. Howard

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has reached a decision on the representations made to him that the age limit for collectors in street and house to house collections in the London area should be reduced from 18 to 16 years.

Mr. Brooke

Yes. I have decided to make this change as regards the Metropolitan Police District, and the Police Authority of the City of London have agreed that it should extend to their area. Amending regulations will be made shortly.
