HC Deb 19 November 1979 vol 974 cc77-8W
Rev. Ian Paisley

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement on the giving of information to the Irish Republican Army by a Royal Ulster Constabulary reservist; and what action he proposes to take.

Mr. Humphrey Atkins

A member of the Royal Ulster Constabulary Reserve was questioned recently in connection with the unauthorised disclosure of official information. Since the papers are currently with the Director of Public Prosecutions, it would not be appropriate for me to comment further.
