§ Mr. Dunlop
asked the Attorney-General whether he intends to take steps to reduce the time of remand in custody of accused persons in Northern Ireland.
§ The Attorney-General
I shall continue to urge all those who have responsibility for the investigation, 457W prosecution and trial of offences in Northern Ireland to keep the time between arrest and trial to a minimum. I recognise, however, that there are special difficulties in Northern Ireland.
