HC Deb 16 December 1981 vol 15 cc125-6W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he proposes to introduce legislation to reverse the decision in R. v Nottingham Justices ex parte Davies—1980 2 A.E.R. 775—in order to reestablish an accused's right to bail.

Mr. Mayhew

We are considering representations about the decision to which the hon. Member refers, but it did not deprive any person to whom the Bail Act 1976 applies of his right to bail under that Act.
