HC Deb 19 April 1995 vol 258 c150W
37. Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what evidence he has of corruption in local government. [17942]

Mr. Robert B. Jones

There are cases where a local authority auditor is investigating allegations of corruption, but everyone is innocent until proved guilty. Criminal proceedings are, of course, a matter for the police and the Crown Prosecution Service.
