HC Deb 04 February 1981 vol 998 c119W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Attorney-General why, following his consideration of the evidence supplied by the Department of Trade's inspector's inquiry into Scotia Investments Ltd., the Director of Public Prosecutions has decided not to prosecute; and whether he will publish the evidence upon which the Director of Public Prosecutions formed his conclusions.

The Attorney-General

In so far as the inspectors' report, which has already been published, revealed the possible commission of offences of fraud, the Director decided not to ask for police inquiries to be made after studying the report and taking leading counsel's advice. Police inquiries into possible offences under the Gaming Act have been carried out on the Director's advice, but have not yet been completed. No final decision on proceedings under this Act will be taken until the Director has received the police report.
