HC Deb 29 April 1963 vol 676 c80W
Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the scope of the Metropolitan Police investigations which are currently being held into the call-girl model service operating in the West End of London, initiated following information volunteered to Criminal Investigation Department officers investigating the circumstances of a similar case recently; and if he will arrange to make available to Her Majesty's Treasury details of this call-girl ring, so as to enable these prostitutes and their organisers to be assessed for Income Tax purposes.

Mr. Brooke

A number of women offering their services as prostitutes operate from flats as call-girls, describing themselves as models. Usually they do this in a way which does not contravene the law. If there is reason to think that the law has been or is being contravened, police investigations are made. But it is not in the public interest to disclose information regarding such investigations.
