HC Deb 26 February 1973 vol 851 cc256-7W
31. Mr. Rees-Davies

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will recommend to chief constables a common police practice in taking oral statements, whereby those statements purporting to be made orally by suspects and accused persons will in future be signed by such persons page by page as an acceptable record, so that trials may be shortened.

Mr. Carlisle

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave to his Question of 22nd February.—[Vol. 851, c.139.]
