§ 46. Mr. Blackburn
asked the Prime Minister whether he will advise that the terms of reference of the Royal Commission on the Death Penalty be extended to cover the method of execution.
§ The Prime Minister
Although the terms of reference do not expressly refer to the method of execution I do not think that it would be outside the competence of the Royal Commission to consider this aspect of the question, and I propose to ask the Commission to include this 1374 matter in their deliberations. I understand that the Chairman-designate would not object.
