I made inquiries earlier this week to see how many other prosecutions were in the pipeline. Many of them in the past have come through customs and excise, but there are no more from that source. There is one prosecution awaiting appeal and two others in the pipeline. What I said today covers only and exclusively the matters referred to in the Bingham report. Should an inquiry be necessary I shall make certain that what the right hon. Gentleman said is considered by my right hon. Friend.
