HC Deb 16 April 1981 vol 3 c268W
Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if it remains Metropolitan Police policy to endeavour to make film records of those attending occasions of social unrest; if he will indicate in due course whether any of those involved in the Brixton riot have been seen at similar events elsewhere; and if he will ask Lord Scarman to investigate the amount of regular attendance at and involvement with such events of members of the National Front, the Anti Nazi League and the Socialist Workers Party.

Mr. Whitelaw

Whether particular events are or are not filmed is an operational matter for the commissioner. The questions as to who was involved in the recent events in Brixton are matters for Lord Scarman to consider.
