HC Deb 28 March 1979 vol 965 cc223-4W
Mr. Robert Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will call for a report from the chief constable of Strathclyde about the incident at Prestwick in August 1978, in which Mr. J. Wood was harassed by the special branch

Mr. McElhone

The following is the information in respect of schools and colleges of further education:

the management of private owners and the Forestry Commission and the percentage per head of the Scottish population.

Mr. Hugh D. Brown

The position as at 31 March was as follows:

division of Strathclyde police on departure from Prestwick airport on a package tour holiday to the USSR; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Harry Ewing

As my hon. Friend knows from the full explanation which was given in the letters sent to him on 15 December 1978 and 15 March 1979, and to which I have nothing to add, a detailed report about this incident has already been obtained from the chief constable, who does not accept that harassment was involved.
