§ Mr. A. SHORT
asked the Home Secretary whether the Thetford Police are attempting to secure the names and addresses of local trade union secretaries and shop stewards; if so, whether this 1729W policy is in accordance with his instructions; and, if not, what action does he propose to take?
§ Mr. SHORTT
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave on Thursday last to the hon. Member for Wellingborough (Mr. W. R. Smith). The inquiries are not made on my instructions, and I have communicated with the Chief Contable with a view to their being discontinued.
