§ Mr. Austin Mitchell
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will call for a report from the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis as to what steps have been taken to identify the owners and whereabouts of the cars referred to in the article by Jonathan Taylor on page 27 of the issue ofThe Independent dated 21 July; and whether those concerned in the affair have been apprehended.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
I understand from the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis that at the time of the incident the victims were unable to provide descriptions of the alleged assailants or registration numbers of their cars. However, the police are contacting Mr. Taylor to see whether he has information which might assist the investigation.
