§ Mr. N. CHAMBERLAIN
asked the Home Secretary whether he proposes to take any action in regard to the recommendations of the Desborough Committee on the Police Service; and, if so, whether legislation will be necessary?
§ Sir J. BAIRD
I presume my hon. Friend refers in this question to the Committee's recommendations in the Second Part of their Report. Legislation will be necessary to give effect to certain of the recommendations, but others can be dealt with by way of regulation, and as provided by the Police Act, 1919, my right hon. Friend consulted a Council containing representatives of the local Police Authorities, the chief officers, and the several ranks of the Service on draft regulations dealing with a number of these points.
