HC Deb 21 May 1981 vol 5 c139W
Mr. McCusker

asked the Prime Minister if she will afford the European Commission of Human Rights the same facilities and assistance for investigation of the complaints of Mrs. Edith Elliott which are now registered in Strasbourg No. 9348/81 and No. 9360/81 as she is giving to it to continue its investigations into the condition of the convicted murderers and terrorists in Her Majesty's prison Maze.

The Prime Minister

These applications have not yet been referred to Her Majesty's Government. Should they be referred, we would of course fulfil our obligations under the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms by extending facilities to the commission to investigate the complaints and find the facts.
