HC Deb 22 July 1980 vol 989 cc187-8W
Miss Maynard

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, further to his answer of 24 June, if he will state how many Service men convicted of offences committed in Northern Ireland and sen- tenced to imprisonment have been in the past, or are now, obliged to serve their sentences there and how many applications, from Service men convicted of an offence committed in Northern Ireland and sentenced to imprisonment to serve their sentences in Great Britain, have been refused.

Mr. Alison

[pursuant to his reply, 21 July 1980, c. 27]: All convicted prisoners in Northern Ireland serve their sentences there unless, as I informed the hon. Member on 2 June, they apply successfully to serve their sentence in another part of the United Kingdom.

Since 1969 one application from a Service man has been refused.
