Mr. Raphael Tuck

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why a directive was sent to all police stations in V Division in the Metropolitan Police from the Chief Superintendent telling every officer to report at once any inquiries made by a Fleet Street journalist named Thomas Bryant, concerning a certain matter.

I am informed that this message was issued to warn police officers that attemps might be made to secure unauthorised information.
