HC Deb 16 July 1964 vol 698 cc276-7W
45. Mrs. Butler

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what inquiries are being made to ensure that all persons who may have been convicted on evidence by Detective-Sergeant Challenor in the last 18 months have an opportunity for their cases to be reviewed.

Mr. Brooke

It is open to any such person to make representations to me or to the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis. Whether or not representations have been made, particulars of all convictions since July, 1962, which, after careful search, can be identified as having depended wholly or partly on the evidence of Detective-Sergeant Challenor are being placed before Mr. Goodchild, Chief Constable of Wolverhampton, for the purpose of the inquiry of which I informed the House on 2nd July.
