§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement, following the decision of the Court of Appeal in the case of the late P.C. Michael Ince, on the extent to which other cases involving the police are likely to be affected, and on the action he proposes to take.
§ Mr. R. Carr
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Board will consider the implications of the decision of the Court of Appeal for future applications and will re-examine any case already dealt with in the light of any representations related to it which it may receive. I have asked the working party which I established to488W review the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme to take account of the decision in its deliberations on the future of the scheme.
