HC Deb 20 July 1965 vol 716 c194W
Mr. Duffy

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is satisfied that the style and quality of the uniform issued to special constables in the West Riding of Yorkshire are consistent with membership of a modern police force; and what action he will take.

Mr. George Thomas

The provision of uniform for the special constabulary is a matter for the police authority, but I understand that the chief constable has already included in the budget proposals for next financial year, which he will be submitting in due course to the police authority, provision for the issue of open-necked jackets to all active members of the special constabulary.
