HC Deb 18 March 1993 vol 221 c320W
Mr. Olner

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will provide telefax facilities for notifying passport control of portstops with photographs.

Mr. Charles Wardle

My right hon. and learned Friend is aware of the recommendation for the provision of telefax facilities made in the recent report of the parliamentary working party on child abduction. The allocation of resources, though for the provision of such equipment is a matter for the chief officers of individual police forces to decide.
