HC Deb 20 December 1932 vol 273 cc901-2

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will issue a circular to all police authorities drawing their attention to the remarks of Mr. Justice Humphries, at the recent Birmingham assizes, in reference to the police furnishing witnesses for the prosecution in cases of wilful murder with copies of statements which they have made?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir John Gilmour)

I have asked for a full report on this incident, and will consider in due course what action, if any, it may be desirable to take.
