HC Deb 13 July 1961 vol 644 cc69-70W
77. Mr. Lagden

asked the Attorney-General whether he will give an assurance that, in all civil cases where judgment is given against trade union or friendly society officers on allegations of fraud and conspiracy, the Public Prosecutor will review the evidence with a view to instituting a prosecution in the public interest.

The Attorney-General

No. Every case referred to the Director of Public Prosecutions is considered on its own facts and I do not think it would be right to give a general undertaking of this character in relation to a particular class of defendants.
