§ Mr. Proctor
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will take steps to ensure that police identity numbers are visible on fireproof clothing made available to the Metropolitan Police.
§ Mr. Mayhew
Current supplies of such overalls have a facility for attaching an epaulette bearing the wearer's number. The Department is in touch with the Metropolitan Police and with other forces about the way in which the initial supplies of overalls lacking this facility can best be modified to identify the wearer.
