§ Rev. Ian Paisley
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many members of the UFF and the Red Hand 70W have been arrested and charged since the proscribing of these organisations.
§ Mr. van Straubenzee
Up to and including 22nd November, 22 Protestants have been arrested and charged with terrorist-type offences since the UFF and Red Hand Commando were proscribed. As their cases are still pending it would not be appropriate for me to go into any further detail.
§ Mr. Cordle
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether he will consider proposing the establishment of an all-Ireland court to deal with acts of terrorism and kindred offences, and invite the Eire Government to co-operate in such a scheme, rather than amend their own extradition laws.
