§ Mr. Whitaker
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why the Metropolitan Police recently included a man's ethnic description on a motoring summons; on how many summonses this has previously been done; and what instructions he will give on this matter in the future.
§ Mr. Taverne
The Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis has told me that this description was typed on the form by inadvertence, and he very much regrets this this occurred. Steps have been taken to prevent any recurrence.
