HC Deb 22 June 1955 vol 542 c1284
9. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

asked the Postmaster-General under what circumstances a sub-postmaster who is to be interrogated as a possible offender by an officer of the Investigation Branch is allowed, under his regulations, to have his solicitor present when such interrogation takes place.

Dr. Hill

The rules for sub-postmasters do not provide for the presence of a solicitor at interrogations. I am examining the present procedure.

Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

While welcoming the undertaking to look into this matter, which, I hope, will lead to some much-needed reform, may I ask the Postmaster-General to note that I am nevertheless raising the case of Mr. Turvey in Friday's Adjournment debate, in which this will be only one of the many serious issues involved?
