asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will set up an inquiry into the treatment of persons by the police while in detention after their arrest at Greenham common on 25 May, following representations from the hon. Member for Greenwich.

No. If any of the detained people wish to make a complaint about their treatment by the Thames Valley police it is open to them to do so through the normal procedures. The detained people were arrested and taken to Reading police station by the Ministry of Defence police and questions about their treatment in the course of this are a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence, to whom I have referred the hon. Member's representations.
