Orders of the Day — Police, Birmingham (Undermanning Allowance) (24 Feb 1972)

Mr Richard Sharples: The hon. Member for Birmingham, Small Heath (Mr. Denis Howell), as one would expect, has made his case with force but with fairness. I am grateful to him for that. As we both know, this is not a party political matter. A great deal of the history that the hon. Gentleman has recounted refers to the period in office of the last Government, of which he was a member. I do not dispute what the...

Orders of the Day — Police, Birmingham (Undermanning Allowance) (24 Feb 1972)

Mr Richard Sharples: My last figure was that there was an increase in January, 1972, of 33, which is good.

I would not pretend that police manpower problems are solved, whether in Birmingham or nationally. There are still deficiencies in Birmingham, as...

The investigating officer found no evidence that the result of the test...

Orders of the Day — Police Investigations (Publicity) (10 Feb 1972)

Mr Richard Sharples: Senior police officers must be responsible for their own handling of publicity in matters of this kind, provided that they are fair to the persons involved. They must also bear in mind carefully the effect that any publicity may have upon court proceedings which may follow. I have not had the time to check the exact relation between what happens in London and in Scotland. I have no reason to...

Anti-Discrimination Bill (28 Jan 1972)

Mr Richard Sharples: I understand that it would be the general wish of the House that I should speak next and put the Government's point of view. I apologise to hon. Members for the time I might be taking up. I shall try to respond to the Bill and to the speech of the hon. Member for Fife, West (Mr. William Hamilton) in the spirit in which he moved the Second Reading. I think it right that the House should be...

Anti-Discrimination Bill (28 Jan 1972)
