§ 2. Mr. Burden
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the recommendations of the Littlewood Report are to be implemented.
§ The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Roy Jenkins)
Legislation will be needed to implement most of the recommendations and I cannot at present say when this will be possible. A scheme for strengthening the Inspectorate is being examined. Proposals for a new Advisory Committee will shortly be put to interested bodies.
§ Mr. Burden
Does not the right hon. Gentleman agree that this is a matter which has caused very considerable public concern? There is a Report, and surely this House is entitled to expect that this matter will be debated somewhere in the comparatively near future?
§ Mr. Jenkins
The hon. Member, I thought, was asking me not when the recommendations would be debated but when they would be implemented.
