HC Deb 12 May 1977 vol 931 c596W
Mr. Sproat

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many persons in each year since 1969 have been kept in prison in Scotland for Irish Republican Army or other terrorist activities.

Mr. Harry Ewing

This information is not available. All convicted prisoners in Scottish prisons have been sentenced for offences against the ordinary criminal law. There is no separate category of offences related to terrorist activities and prisoners are not classified according to their political sympathies.
