HC Deb 22 April 1971 vol 815 c415W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what fees and salaries will be receivable by Detective Inspector John Minore and others of the Metropolitan Police who will be engaged in making a documentary film on the Mrs. Muriel McKay murder case, entitled, "Worse than Murder"; and whether he will make a statement on his policy towards police being employed on private work in general, and this type of activity in particular.

Mr. Sharples

The answer to the first part of the question is "None". As regards the second part, the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis decided that it would be in the public interest to cooperate with the B.B.C. in the production of this particular documentary. No question of private work therefore arises.
