HC Deb 23 April 1964 vol 693 c203W
59. Mr. Mason

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will ask the Police Research and Planning Branch to inquire into methods of investigating bribery in professional football, in view of the ineffectiveness of the piecemeal investigations at present taking place.

Mr. Brooke

There are adequate arrangements for ensuring co-operation between forces in matters of this kind, and I do not think there are any grounds for special inquiry by the Police Research and Planning Branch.
