§ 34. Sir W. Smithers
asked the Minister of Health if, in view of the shortage of accommodation for members of the Police Force, and in view of the fact that the police are a building authority, he will grant licences direct to that authority.
§ Sir W. Smithers
Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that in many cases the provision of much needed accommodation for the police has been taken out of the quota of local authorities, which makes their task much more difficult?
§ Mr. Godfrey Nicholson
Will the right hon. Gentleman make it clear that local authorities are not forced to give up any part of their housing programme to the police, and only do so of their own accord?
