HC Deb 14 November 1988 vol 140 c741
65. Mr. Campbell-Savours

To ask the Attorney-General when he next intends to meet the Director of Public Prosecutions to discuss prosecution policy.

The Solicitor-General

I expect to meet the director in just under three weeks' time.

Mr. Campbell-Savours

Did the Solicitor-General see the "Panorama" Wright interview, in which Wright said that he worked with one man during the period of the plot against the Wilson Government? Has he also noticed that, in his book, David Leigh indentifies that one man as Mr. Tony Brooks, who to this day lives in London and is a friend of an hon. Gentleman who was here a few minutes ago? Will that man be prosecuted? He lives in London and has been identified by Wright on television as working with him in illegal acts.

The Solicitor-General

I am interested in the information that the hon. Gentleman gives. I shall see that it is considered by the appropriate authorities.

Mr. Knapman

When my hon. and learned Friend next meets the Director of Public Prosecutions, will he consider operating a policy against Scottish Labour Members, who are rarely in the Chamber?

The Solicitor-General

As far as I know, that is not an offence.

Mr. Fraser

What other evidence has come to the Solicitor-General's attention that could corroborate the allegations made by Mr. Wright that have come to light since his book was published? Has there been much corroboration, and, if so, is it sufficient to re-open inquiries about whether criminal offences were committed?

The Solicitor-General

I cannot add to the answer that I gave to the hon. Member for Workington (Mr. Campbell-Savours).
