HC Deb 29 March 1973 vol 853 c369W
2. 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 on 22nd February.—[Vol. 851, c.139.]
