HC Deb 21 December 1989 vol 164 cc453-4W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Attorney-General whether any police officers are to be prosecuted for perjury arising from the collapse of the Morledge case.

The Attorney-General

It is for the chief constable of the Nottinghamshire constabulary to determine whether there should be a disciplinary or criminal investigation. If there is a criminal investigation the provisions of part IX of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 will determine whether a report should be submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions. The question of prosecution cannot arise unless and until such a report is submitted.
