§ Lord Spens
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether the investigation by the Metropolitan Police Complaints Investigation Bureau into the conduct of certain police officers involved in the Guinness trials into, inter alia, the non-disclosure of evidence, has been concluded and, if so, what are its conclusions or, if not, when is the investigation estimated to be completed.
§ The Minister of State, Home Office (Baroness Blatch)
I understand that the investigation has now been concluded and that a report will be submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions, who will decide whether any criminal charges should be brought. Once a decision has been made, the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police and the Police Complaints Authority will consider whether disciplinary action should be taken against any officer.
