HC Deb 11 July 1966 vol 731 c156W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he is taking regarding allegations of misconduct against the Metropolitan Police which have been submitted to him by the hon. Member for Holborn and St. Pancras, South; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

I referred these allegations to the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis who is responsible for the investigation of complaints against members of his force. The Commissioner has had very full inquiries made and, in accordance with Section 49(3) of the Police Act, 1964, referred the report of the investigation to the Director of Public Prosecutions. The Director is satisfied that there is no evidence to justify any criminal proceedings against any of the police officers. I am writing fully to the hon. Member.
