HC Deb 26 June 1958 vol 590 c40W
61. Mr. K. Robinson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the National Association for Mental Health can expect a reply to their letter of 2nd January, 1958, receipt of which was acknowledged by his Department, and their further letter of 25th April, so far unacknowledged, on the subject of police practice in cases of suspected child murder.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I am sorry that the Association did not have an earlier reply to their letters, which related to the practice of securing the publication in the Press and on television of photographs of missing children as an aid to the police in their inquiries. This is a matter which is the responsibility of the Commissioner of Police, and I have sent the hon. Member a copy of the reply which, after consultation with the Commissioner, has now been sent to the Association.
