HC Deb 23 May 1985 vol 79 cc508-9W
Mr. Canavan

asked the Solicitor-General for Scotland what complaints have been submitted to procurators fiscal 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.
