HC Deb 23 July 1953 vol 518 c64W
78. Mr. Benn

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make available to hon. Members who wish to see it the log book kept at Pentonville Prison in which are entered statements made by John Christie up to the moment of his execution.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

No. It is the long established practice not to disclose the contents of this confidential document, and I am not prepared to authorise a departure from that practice in this case.
