HC Deb 31 January 1985 vol 72 c246W
80. Mr. Litherland

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce on an experimental basis the tape recording of immigration interviews.

Mr. Waddington

No. The outcome of a further review by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of the possible use of tape recordings in interviews by entry clearance officers abroad is awaited. Until it is received no decision will be taken about the use of tape recorders in immigration interviews in this country.
