HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 c218W
135. Mr. Gunter

asked the Attorney-General upon what date prima facie evidence of a contravention of the building regulations in the erection of the Weir Stadium, Rayleigh, Essex, was submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions; and what action is now contemplated.

The Attorney-General

The papers in this matter were first submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions on 1st October and some supplementary papers on 9th November. Instructions have been given to the two police forces concerned to make inquiries and take statements from witnesses in the ordinary way. These inquiries have not yet been completed but there is no reason to think that they are not proceeding with due diligence, particularly having regard to the somewhat complicated nature of the issues involved.
