§ Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received on the report "Feasibility of an Experiment in the Tape-Recording of Police Interrogation", Command Paper No. 6630, since he received the report in October; if he is now in a position to take action on the report; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Merlyn Rees
I refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to his Question on 31st March.—[Vol. 929, c. 199.] My Department is awaiting the remaining comments on the report from those whose views have been particularly invited; a reminder has been issued. Meanwhile, we are considering the helpful, though divergent, comments already received.
