§ Mr. Christopher Price
asked the Secretary of State for Defence, further to his reply to the hon. Member for Lewisham, West on 29 October, if he will now give the precise terms of the charges to be brought or which have been brought against Lieutenant-colonel Seward.
§ Mr. Wiggin
It is not normal practice to publish the precise terms of charges in advance of the trial itself as this may prejudice the interests of the accused. They are normally made public the day before the trial and I shall see that the hon. Member is informed on that day.
