HC Deb 22 June 1972 vol 839 c153W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, as the programme "Police Five", which has been a regular feature on Granada Television since 1963, has assisted the Manchester and Salford Police Force in detecting and arresting criminals, he will obtain from the Chief Constable for Lancashire a report giving details of the successes obtained, and publish these in the Official Report.

Mr. Carlisle

The Chief Constable of Manchester and Salford informs me that, between 1st January and 31st May, information about 62 cases was broadcast on the Granada Television programme "Police Five". Useful information was received from the public in 18 cases and led to the successful outcome of investigation in seven cases. The corresponding figures for 1971 were 214, 44 and nine.
