HC Deb 30 March 1979 vol 965 c365W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will ask the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis to ensure that all statements made by the police within his force to the mass media must be personally attributable to the officer taking the statement and that a signed copy should be made available for inspection by his Department and hon. Members.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

Neither the Commissioner nor I see any case for an arrangement of this kind.
