HC Deb 25 June 1974 vol 875 c433W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that the Annual Report of the Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis is always at least three months late in publication and that the current one was six months out of date before publication; and whether he will take action to expedite the publication of these reports in future years.

Dr. Summerskill

The commissioner is always anxious to expedite his report. But substantial work is required to prepare it and very little of this can begin until after the end of the year.
