HC Deb 21 November 1986 vol 105 cc386-7W
Mr. Frank Field

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if the Chief Constable of the Royal Ulster Constabulary intends, in the light of the riotous scenes and lootings in Belfast after a rally on 15 November, to use photographs to identify those involved for use as evidence against them in any prosecutions; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Scott

Royal Ulster Constabulary inquiries into offences committed during and after the rally in Belfast City Centre on 15 November are continuing. I understand that the police are making full use of the photographic and video records available to them.
