HC Deb 10 March 1966 vol 725 cc610-1W
7. Mr. Lipton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in order to assist the fight against crime, he will take steps to permit commercial security companies to check the back grounds of potential employees with the police.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

I have no power to require chief officers of police to disclose information from police records, but I am considering this question in consultation with chief officers.
