HC Deb 01 March 1973 vol 851 c392W
22. Mr. Rees-Davies

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps have been taken by the Metropolitan Police to provide suitable rooms and equipment at Scotland Yard and in their other main police stations to enable recordings to be taken of interviews both for the advantage of police administration and for the questioning of witnesses and suspected persons; and what are the proposals for improving the system.

Mr. Carlisle

None, Sir. But the tape recordings of police questioning is one of the possibilities that my right hon. Friend is considering in connection with the recommendations in the Criminal Law Revision Committee's report on evidence.
