HC Deb 03 February 1983 vol 36 c162W
39. Mr. Cryer

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what are the general issues relating to telephone tapping about which he will answer parliamentary questions.

Mr. Whitelaw

I have already made it clear that the general issues on which I should be prepared to answer questions are those relating to the procedures and safeguards set out in the White Paper "The Interception of Communications in Great Britain" (Cmnd. 7873) and the role of the judicial monitor.
