asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has now received the report of the chief officer of police concerned in respect of the misuse of information held on the police national computer in events concerning casinos run by the Ladbroke group; and if he will make a statement.

Yes. I understand that the matters alleged may be the subject of proceedings. Therefore I cannot comment on the case which gave rise to this question. However, I can say that the chief officer concerned has reviewed procedures in his force and, with Home Office agreement, has introduced additional precautions to enable checks to be made more easily on the use of information received at computer terminals.
