§ Mr. Canavan
asked the Solicitor-General for Scotland what complaints have been submitted to procurators fiscal 509W that a British defence policy based on the threatened use of nuclear weapons is illegal; what action has been taken as a result; and whether he will arrange to meet the complainants concerned to discuss their evidence.
§ The Solicitor-General for Scotland
Such a complaint was submitted to the procurator fiscal at Stirling on 29 March 1985 by a delegation of students from the University of Stirling. The matter was referred to Crown counsel who instructed "no proceedings" and I do not think that any further purpose would be served by meeting the complainers.
I am not aware of any other complaints of a similar nature having been made.
