HC Deb 28 October 1982 vol 29 c542W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, further to his reply to the hon. Member for Newham, North-West on 26 October, if he will give the reasons why he will not dismiss the Director of Public Prosecutions in the light of the criticism directed at him for discourtesy by the magistrate, Mr. Denis Purcell.

Mr. Mayhew

The facts to which the hon. Member drew our attention provide no grounds for taking that course.
