HC Deb 05 March 1987 vol 111 c686W
26. Mr. Hind

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent representations he has received to amend the Criminal Appeal Act 1968 in relation to appeals by the prosecution against sentences for criminal offences; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

Some members of the public have written to suggest a prosecution right of appeal; but we think it better to adhere to our proposal in clause 29 of the Criminal Justice Bill.
