§ Mr. Patchett
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his policy towards the case of Mr. Peter Pickering, a patient at Park Lane hospital, Merseyside, remains as stated in the Official Report on 9 April, columns 61–62.
§ Mr. Mellor
Yes, my right hon. and learned Friend and I continue to take the firm view that Mr. Pickering is not fit for release into the community.
