HC Deb 01 May 1980 vol 983 c600W
24. Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement about the use of tape recorders during the interrogation of people suspected of, or charged with, crime.

Mr. Whitelaw

This subject is under consideration by the Royal Commission on criminal procedure, which proposes to publish later this year a report of the research which it has commissioned on tape recording.
