HC Deb 11 January 1977 vol 923 cc456-7W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will give details of any cases where persons have been prosecuted and found guilty when pleading innocence where evidence was supplied in any way by the five police officers found guilty in the recent pornographic trial.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

I am informed by the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis that none of the information requested could be provided without the scrutiny of large numbers of individual case papers. This would involve disproportionate effort and expense. I will, of course, be prepared to consider any representations which may be made to me on behalf of particular individuals.
