HC Deb 28 January 1982 vol 16 c419W
17. Mr. Chapman

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he is satisfied with the progress being made in ensuring that in Northern Ireland laws, and the rules and regulations made under them, have the same effect as those operating in the rest of the United Kingdom, except where there are special circumstances.

Mr. John Patten

Yes Sir. The first priority is to ensure that legislation for Northern Ireland meets the needs of the province. We do not seek uniformity.
