§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what guidance the Chief Constable of the Royal Ulster Constabulary issues to his force about the use of agents provocateurs.
§ Mr. Scott
The Chief Constable issues guidance to the Royal Ulster Constabulary in accordance with paragraph 1.92 of the Home Office consolidated circular on crime and kindred matters, which advises that no member of a police force should counsel, incite or procure the commission of a crime. A copy of the consolidated circular is in the Library.
