§ 6. Mr. Carmichael
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what access to police files and records is given to ex-policemen subsequently employed as security staff with other organisations.
§ Mr. Carmichael
Is the Secretary of State aware that there is a widespread belief among the public, with some evidence, admittedly very difficult to substantiate, that these officers are employed precisely because of their close association with the police force, their knowledge of police methods and their informal association with policemen? Will he take steps to ensure that there is absolutely no access, either official or unofficial, to police records by ex-policemen employed in these jobs?
