HC Deb 23 March 1971 vol 814 c84W
37. Mr. Stratton Mills

asked the Attorney-General if he will institute a prosecution on the grounds of misprison of treason against those persons engaged by the British Broadcasting Corporation in interviewing Irish Republican Army gunmen who advocated the shooting of British troops.

The Attorney-General

If any evidence is placed before me which tends to show that any person subject to the jurisdiction of the English Courts has committed this, or any similar offence, I shall certainly consider it.
