HC Deb 25 November 1974 vol 882 cc36-7W
Mr. Powell

asked the Attorney-General if he will refer to the Director of Public Prosecutions the transmission by ITV "Weekend World" on 17th November of threatening language uttered by a Mr. O'Connell.

The Attorney-General

I have read the transcript of the television interview to which the right hon. Member refers. In my opinion, no criminal offence was committed by those responsible for the transmission of the programme, and in those circumstances it is not my intention to refer the matter to the Director.
