HC Deb 22 December 1983 vol 51 c338W
Mr. McQuarrie

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to provide for convicted terrorists to be treated as traitors and liable for the imposition of the death penalty.

Mr. Mellor

No. I remind my hon. Friend of the decision taken by the House earlier this Session when it considered the question of imposing the death penalty for murder resulting from acts of terrorism.
