HC Deb 03 July 1986 vol 100 c1161
13. Sir John Farr

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement on the current security situation.

Mr. Tom King

I refer my hon. Friend to the reply that I gave to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for Leicester, East (Mr. Bruinvels) earlier today.

Sir John Farr

I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply. In that connection, will he confirm that the brutal attacks on the homes and families of RUC members in the north are being curbed?

Mr. King

The scale of attacks is much less, but there have been further isolated incidents. I know that the whole House will join me in deploring the way in which people have sought to intimidate both members of the RUC and prison officers in their own homes.
