HC Deb 19 February 1990 vol 167 c653
35. Mr. Dalyell

To ask the Attorney-General when he last met the Director of Public Prosecutions; and what was discussed.

The Attorney-General

I refer the hon. Gentleman to the answer that I have just given to the hon. Member for Nottingham, North (Mr. Allen).

Mr. Dalyell

Following his undertaking to my hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham, North (Mr. Allen), will the Attorney-General reflect on the penultimate paragraph of the letter from Colin Wallace to the Prime Minister of 19 February asking how it came about that the director of Army legal services, Major-General Whiteley, became involved in preparing a summary for the Appeal Court? Will he find out from colleagues such as Sue Marsh how that happened?

The Attorney-General

I have many responsibilities, but they do not extend to the hon. Gentleman's question. There is nothing that I can usefully add to what I said to the hon. Member for Nottingham, North.
