§ Mr. Ashley
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many times the work of Home Office forensic scientists has been investigated internally following their giving evidence in court.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
As was indicated in the reply given on 1 July 1981—[Vol. 7, c. 391–93]—to a question by the right hon. Member, examinations of work are carried out regularly. As far as records indicate, on only one occasion—in the case of Dr. Clift—has need been shown for more extensive enquiries as a direct result.
