HC Deb 22 July 1971 vol 821 c343W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Attorney-General when he was first requested to take legal action on the illegal practice known as cube cutting ; what action he then took ; when he expects to finalise proceedings in connection with this matter ; and whether he will make a statement.

The Attorney-General

This matter came to the attention of my predecessor on 23rd January, 1969. He then asked the Director of Public Prosecutions to arrange for police inquiries to be made. Summonses have now been served on two people as a result of police inquiries. As proceedings are, therefore, pending it would not be right for me to make any further statement.
