HC Deb 27 July 1979 vol 971 c510W
Mr. Alton

asked the Attorney-General if he will refer Plessey Ltd. to the Director of Public Prosecutions with a view to prosecution for fraud in respect of Government grants for its Edge Lane, Liverpool plant.

The Attorney-General

The police have for some time been making inquiries into alleged irregularities at the Edge Lane plant of Plessey Ltd. and will shortly be submitting a report to the Director of Public Prosecutions. There is no indication that the alleged irregularities involved the misapplication of Government grants.
