HC Deb 17 December 1981 vol 15 c207W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Attorney-General why the charges against those arrested in connection with the armed robbery of a branch of Williams and Glyn's bank in the City of London four years ago were not proceeded with; if he will make a statement; and if there are to be any prosecutions in connection with the case.

The Attorney-General

The evidence available in this case of armed robbery did not justify criminal proceedings in respect of this offence. However, two police officers have been charged and are awaiting trial in connection with matters relating to the case. In the circumstances I do not consider it would be appropriate to make any statement.
