§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will make a statement on the armed robbery which took place on Thursday, 15th April, within the vicinity of New Scotland Yard, S.W.1; and whether any private security firm was involved.
§ Mr. Sharples
Two men have been charged with offences connected with the incident. It would not therefore be proper for me to comment at this stage. As regards the second part of the Question, a security company had made the money up into wage packets but were not transporting it at the time of the incident.
