HC Deb 28 January 1987 vol 109 cc246-7W
Mr. Alton

asked the Attorney-General if he will prosecute the 11 Royal Ulster Constabulary officers named in Mr. John Stalker's report, whom he recommended should be charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

The Attorney-General

Mr. Stalker's recommendations are confidential and I am not prepared to make any statement in relation to them. The investigation originally undertaken by Mr. John Stalker is being continued by Mr. Colin Sampson, but is not yet completed.

When the DPP(NI) receives the completed report he will consider the question of prosecutions. I have asked him to inform me fully with regard to the facts reported to him and to consult me before any directions are given.
