§ Mr. Dobson
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give the rank of each of the five Metropolitan Police officers engaged upon inquiries into matters raised by the Bingham report, and specify in the case of each officer how long he or she was engaged in the inquiries and whether full-time or part-time.878W
§ Mr. Whitelaw
I understand from the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis that one detective chief superintendent, one detective sergeant and a detective constable were engaged full-time on these inquiries from December 1978 until April 1979. In addition, a detective chief inspector and a detective sergeant were engaged part-time over this period.
