§ 38. Mr. Parker
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department by what authority the Metropolitan Police recently issued a statement that serious allegations made against the Metropolitan Police Fraud Squad cannot be sustained.
§ Mr. Renton
By direction of the Commissioner, the Solicitor to the Metropolitan Police communicated with a newspaper to draw attention to a statement that had been published in it which might be taken to reflect generally on the character of Metropolitan officers of the Company Fraud Branch. The newspaper was good enough to retract the statement.
