HC Deb 16 April 1964 vol 693 cc102-3W
67. Mr. Mason

asked the Attorney General, in view of the further bribing of professional footballers that has taken place, if he will have inquiries made of the Football Association and the Football League with a view to instituting criminal proceedings against those responsible; if he will request the press investigation team of the Sunday newspaper responsible for these recent revelations to hand over their evidence in order to facilitate inquiries; and if he will make a statement.

The Attorney General

It is for the police to investigate allegations that offences have been committed. I understand that inquiries are already in progress and I will make a statement when they are completed. I assume that the reporters concerned will make available to the police any evidence in their possession which suggests that an offence has been committed.

Forward to
