HC Deb 11 June 1986 vol 99 c174W
Sir Humphrey Atkins

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to his statement on 17 April, Official Report, column 1150, concerning compensation for victims of the Brighton bombing on 12 October 1984, whether in view of the stage the current trial at the Old Bailey has now reached, the seven claimants whose claims are ready for settlement by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board, have now been paid; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

I understand that the board has been keeping in touch with the progress of the trial, but has not yet sent offers to those applicants (now eight in number) whose cases have been held up.
