HC Deb 03 August 1972 vol 842 cc163-4W
22. Dame Patricia Hornsby-Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether he will make available in the House of Commons Library the pathologists' reports of post mortems conducted on victims of the Irish Republican Army where the evidence shows that they were tortured before being murdered.

Mr. David Howell

No. The public interest is fully served by the present statutory arrangements under which the coroner to whom the post mortem reports are made may make them available to properly interested persons.
