HC Deb 24 January 1978 vol 942 c499W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been drawn to the statement made at the Old Bailey by Judge Michael Argyle, QC, on Monday 16th January 1978 concerning the police in failing to stamp out blue movie cinema clubs; and, in view of the evidence submitted at the recent pornographic trials affecting a large number of high-ranking police officers, he will cause an investigation to be made to see that the police are carrying out their proper duties and not still protecting the pornographic industry.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

I have seen reports of the judge's remarks. As to the second part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to his Question on 8th December.—[Vol. 940, col. 830.]
