HC Deb 21 October 1971 vol 823 cc167-8W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, as further evidence has now been submitted to him showing that the police are failing to carry out their liability to enforce the law according to statute, if he will now introduce the necessary legislation to enable aggrieved taxpayers the opportunity to sue the police for damages and redress.

Mr. Sharples

My right hon. Friend is not aware of any need for legislation of the kind suggested.
