HC Deb 12 December 1963 vol 686 cc115-6W
68. Mr. MacDermot

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will request the Commissioner of Metropolitan Police to conduct experiments in making sealed tape recordings of interviews with persons in custody.

Mr. Brooke

The possible use of such equipment is kept under review, but the Commissioner of Police is not satisfied that serious practical objections to it have been overcome.
