HC Deb 16 December 1982 vol 34 c229W
Mr. Proctor

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will take steps, in the light of information conveyed by the Metropolitan Police to the Secretary of State for the Home Department, to proscribe Sinn Fein; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Prior

I have at present no plans to do so, but the legal status of a number of organisations is kept under close review.
