HC Deb 08 May 1952 vol 500 c58W
76. Mr. J. T. Price

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the regulations in force governing the production of statements made to police officers by witnesses of road accidents when such statements may be required by injured persons or their legal representatives.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

The practice of chief officers of Police in these cases is not governed by Regulations. The general question of making statements available to civil litigants was, however, considered by the Supreme Court Committee on Practice and Procedure and, as the result, a common procedure was recommended to Chief Officers of Police: as these suggestions are somewhat detailed, I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
