§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why it took so long for him to reply to the communication from the hon. Member for Newham, North-West dated 20 May about the attack upon a bus conductress; and whether this was due to the delay caused by his Department or the police.
§ Mr. Mayhew
There has been no unnecessary delay. A full investigation has been carried out by the police into the incident about which the hon. Member wrote on 20 May and my noble Friend wrote to him on 12 July.
