Mr. McCusker

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (1) how many orderly posts it is estimated are necessary to service a fully occupied H-block at Her Majesty's prison, Maze, and how many orderly posts existed in H-block 7 in June 1982 and December 1982;

(2) how many of the 185 Republican prisoners who were serving determinate sentences at Her Majesty's prison, Maze and who came off protest on 1 November 1982 by making themselves available for work had, by (a) 1 February, (b) 1 March and (c) 1 April 1983, obtained the full degree of remission to which they were entitled, as a result of the agreement entered into by him following the ending of the hunger strike; how any of these prisoners qualified for immediate release; and how many were released during the next six months.

Mr. Scott

I shall reply to the hon. Gentleman as soon as possible.
