§ Mr. Winnick
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he is taking to encourage the Metropolitan Police authorities to accept suit- 134W able Commonwealth applicants for the police force.
§ Mr. Taverne
The Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis will glady accept any applicant to join the force who reaches the standard required.
My right hon. Friend is studying ways in which a larger number of suitable coloured applicants can be encouraged to come forward.
