HC Deb 28 February 1977 vol 927 c3W
Mr. James White

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will make a statement of his proposals for new legislation relating to criminal matters.

Mr. Millan

I am examining the possibility of legislation in this area, which might include measures in the field of criminal justice and also certain of the proposals requiring legislation in the Second Report of the Thomson Committee on Criminal Procedure in Scotland (Cmnd. 6218). I shall make an announcement in due course when I have made further progress with these issues.
