Will not my right hon. Friend agree that the Hendon College was a very great success in its day; and that many of the people who are now at the top in the force were graduates there? Would it not be a good thing to reinstitute it?
The Hendon College was for the Metropolitan Police alone. It was an experiment which started in 1934; the arrangements were substantially altered in 1938 and, inevitably, it came to an end during the war. But I hope that my hon. Friend, and any other hon. Members on both sides of the House who are interested, will take the opportunity to visit the new Police College at Bramshill, if they have not done so. I think that they will be very greatly impressed by the higher training going on there.
