To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what reports she has received on the time taken for the Metropolitan Police to act in the case of a foreign national conducting a seminar which is alleged to have encouraged assistance with suicide in London, June 2013; and what steps she is taking to ensure that the case is now properly investigated.

No such reports have been received. The investigation of criminal offences is an operational matter for the police. It would therefore not be appropriate for the Government to interfere in police investigations.
