§ 4. Mr. Dalyell
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what scientific devices, already publicised, he has introduced in the last 12 months for the prevention of crime.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
It is not possible, within the compass of a reply to a Question, to give an adequate account of the continuing process of applying science to police work. I expect shortly to receive the report of the Police Advisory Board Working Party which has been surveying the whole field of police equipment, and I will then write to my hon. Friend.
§ Mr. Dalyell
When the Home Secretary receives the report, would he give publicity to the work that is being done, which, in the view of many of us, is extremely satisfactory?
§ Mr. Jenkins
I certainly propose to publish the report at an early stage, and I will certainly consider measures to see that this is brought to the notice of the public as fully as possible.
