§ Sir John Biggs-Davison
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will place in the Library the text of the statement of the Northern Ireland police authority concerning the practice of asking members of the Royal Ulster Constabulary their views on the Anglo-Irish Agreement; whether it was with the authority of the Chief Constable that this practice was initiated; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Tom King
This is a matter for the Chief Constable of the Royal Ulster Constabulary. The Police Authority for Northern Ireland did not issue any statement on the matter.
