HC Deb 18 July 1974 vol 877 c215W
32. Mr. Newens

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to make it an offence for the employees of foreign-based secret police organisations to collect or transmit overseas information relating to persons visiting or resident in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

No, but as I told the hon. Member on 20th June in reply to a similar Question, prompt action would be taken if there were any evidence of unlawful activity.
