HC Deb 17 December 1975 vol 902 c658W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will call for reports from chief constables of police on their compliance with the procedures recommended by his Department for identification parades.

Dr. Summerskill

No, but if the hon. Member has a particular case in mind, and will send my noble Friend details, he will have inquiries made. We will be considering whether there is any need for the issue of further guidance to the police on identification parades in the light of the report of the Committee on Identification Procedures under the Chairmanship of Lord Devlin which we expect to receive early next year.
