HC Deb 29 April 1976 vol 910 cc139-40W
Mr. Wm. Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what major projects are at present under consideration by the Department of Law Reform in Northern Ireland; and when will the department publish its next report.

Mr. Merlyn Rees,

pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 26th April 1976; Vol. 910, c. 37], gave the following information:

There is no Department of Law Reform. The former office of Law Reform has been absorbed into the Department of Finance. There is no arrangement for the publication of regular reports on law reform—departments concerned with particular proposals for law reform consider the extent and nature of consultation separately in the context of each proposal.
