HC Deb 27 April 1982 vol 22 c231W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress has been made to implement the recommendation in the Scarman report that lay visitors should be allowed into police station detention areas.

Mr. Mayhew

We are considering how best to carry forward this recommendation in the light of the local consultations with representatives of police authorities, police forces and other interested groups that have taken place.
