Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will call for a report by the Chief Constable of the Merseyside police on the investigation by the fraud squad of the Merseyside police into the allegation of the irregular issue of National Health Service prescriptions in the Sefton area of Merseyside referred to in the answer by the Minister for Health on 19 April, Official Report, c. 45; and if he will make a statement.

The Chief Constable of Merseyside tells us that a report of the police investigation into this allegation was submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions, who decided that there was no evidence that a criminal offence had been committed.
