§ Mr. Maclennan
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to introduce legislation establishing a prison disciplinary tribunal, as recommended by the report of the committee on the prison disciplinary system (Cmnd. 9641).
§ Mr. Mellor
As my right hon. Friend said when announcing the publication of the report of the committee on the prison disciplinary system on 30 October 1985, he accepts the need for new adjudication arrangements. The current position is that my right hon. Friend is considering in the light of the report what these arrangements should be. We hope that there will be an early opportunity for legislation.
