HC Deb 01 December 1983 vol 49 c570W
Mr. Sims

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will make a statement on the recruitment of women to the Metropolitan police in the light of the findings in the Policy Studies Institute report.

Mr. Brittan

The Commissioner has told me that he will drop the 10 per cent. quota on the recruitment of women and will review his recruitment policies as a matter of urgency. I welcome this decision.
