§ 66. Mr. Mason
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give details of the other police forces with whom the Sheffield City Police are in contact in investigations into alleged bribery in professional football; and what steps he has taken to ensure that arrangements such as these are adequate.
§ Mr. Brooke
It would be contrary to the public interest to disclose details of a police investigation in progress in relation to alleged criminal offences. The investigation of the allegations and the arrangements for co-ordination in this instance are matters for the Sheffield City police force and the other forces concerned, but in addition I understand that the Director of Public Prosecutions has been consulted.
