HC Deb 02 February 1961 vol 633 c149W
79. Mrs. Braddock

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will take the necessary legislative action to prohibit any publication of the name, detail or address of any person who offers information to the police when they are investigating a murder or serious crime.

Mr. R. A. Butler

My information is that the police exercise great care in this matter, and I think it is best left to their discretion.
