§ Mr. Cryer
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will ask the chief constable of West Yorkshire to forward to him a copy of the police report to the Leeds coroner of the circumstances surrounding the death of Helen Smith in Jeddah; and if he will make the report available to hon. Members.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
No. I understand that certain police inquiries into this death are continuing. When the police report is completed, it will be for the Leeds coroner to decide, in the light of the police investigations, what, if any, further action he should take. This is not a matter in which it would be appropriate for me to intervene.
