asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether, prior to the journey, special staff instructions were issued for safeguarding the packages of high value, recently stolen in transit, to jewellery firms in Regent Street, W.1.
§ Mr. Gammans
There are standing instructions for drivers of vans on services of this kind: the driver of this particular van is in custody.
§ Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
Will the Minister say whether an ordinary van was used for this journey or whether a special service van was ordered and used, when it was known that valuable jewellery was involved?
