§ 18. Mr. Wm. Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether he has any plans to make changes in the law relating to the admissibility of evidence in Northern Ireland.
§ Mr. Humphrey Atkins
I keep under close and continuous review all aspects of the law relating to terrorism, including the rules of evidence. If and when I am satisfied that changes would be of real help to the security forces without unacceptable derogation from the necessary standards of legal procedure, I shall bring proposals before this House.
