HC Deb 08 August 1972 vol 842 c395W
Mr. Stratton Mills

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will seek to amend the criminal injuries law to provide compensation where coins of special numismatic value are destroyed from the premises of a business dealing in such coins; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Howell

This matter is governed by subsection (2)(a) of Section 4 of the Criminal Injuries Act (Northern Ireland), 1956 and there are no plans to amend that provision.
