HC Deb 09 April 1984 vol 58 c37W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans he has to bring down the parole threshold in Scotland and for what categories of offenders; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Ancram

I refer to the answer I gave to my hon. Friend's question on 28 February (Vol.55, c. 51). My right hon. Friend's discussions with the Parole Board for Scotland have not yet been concluded.
