HC Deb 04 December 1967 vol 755 c946
36. Sir C. Osborne

asked the Attorney-General if he will ask for the report of the investigation made by the Metropolitan Police into the corruption of young guardsmen by a well-to-do vice ring promoting homosexuality in the Household Cavalry and the Welsh Guards; and if he will pass the papers to the Director of Public Prosecutions for the appropriate action in the courts.

The Attorney-General

The Director of Public Prosecutions has received the police report of their investigation into these allegations. The Director is considering whether criminal proceedings should be taken.

Sir C. Osborne

Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman do his utmost to expedite this matter? Is he aware that on the front page of the Daily Mail this morning is an article, the allegations of which touch the honour of an hon. Member of this House? In view of this, should not this matter be cleared up as quickly as possible, one way or the other?

The Attorney-General

I assure the hon. Gentleman that the matter is being dealt with with the utmost expedition and care.
