The quantization of the Hall conductance is investigated for non-interacting electrons in a two-dimensional crystal with glide-plane symmetry. This is the simplest space-group symmetry imposing new general constraints on the Hall conductance, besides those already imposed by magnetic translational symmetry. Both the cases of isolated and degenerate magnetic bands are considered.
