§ Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop
asked the Attorney-General whether the Director of public Prosecutions referred to him the question whether Robert Alfred Clark should be prosecuted in connection with contracts placed by Stevenage Council with Gibbons Contractors; what decision he reached; and what were the reasons for reaching it.
§ The Attorney-General
In my unavoidable absence the Director of Public Prosecutions placed the papers in this case before my hon. and learned Friend the Solicitor-General with a strong recommendation that the evidence was insufficient to warrant proceedings. My hon. and learned Friend studied the papers and agreed. Since the hon. Member put down his Question I have studied the papers and I entirely agree with the Director and my hon. and learned Friend.
