HC Deb 22 October 1953 vol 518 c296W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will take steps to ensure that, in all cases of investigations by the police into murder charges, there shall be kept a full and complete recorded account of all evidence and talks entered into between the police and the accused on proper electrical recording machines and that these records will be preserved for future reference.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

No. I know of no grounds for introducing such a radical change in the methods of police investigation.
