HC Deb 09 December 1981 vol 14 c404W
32. Mr. Dewar

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects to be in a position to report on the experiments in tape recording questioning of suspects detained under section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 1980.

Mr. Rifkind

Further developments in the experiment are under discussion with the chief constables immediately concerned. I hope to be in a position to make a statement about the experiment early in the new year.
