§ Mr. Gregory
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if the committee set up to examine the supply of police uniforms has yet consulted industry and appropriate trade and local authority associations; when he expects to issue a report on their recommendations; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
Both the committee on men's uniform and its sub-committee on women's uniform include representatives of the industry and the local authority associations. I understand that good progress is being made, but that it is too early to assess how soon their recommendations will be submitted.
