asked the Home Secretary the age and rank of police constable X626; how long has he been engaged on motor police duties in London, and especially in the Regent's Park area; what reservations from military service apply in the case of police constables engaged on motor duties; and what reduction in numbers in London of police constables so employed have taken place since September 1939?

I know of no public purpose which would be served by giving the particulars asked for in the first part of the Question, and it would be contrary to the public interest to give any detailed information in regard to the third part. The answer to the second part is that in the matter of reservation no distinction is drawn between constables engaged on traffic patrol duties and others.
