§ Mr. Galloway
To ask the Attorney-General how many times in the last three years a prosecution based on evidence procured by the anti-terrorist squad has been withdrawn by the Director of Public Prosecutions due to lack of evidence.
§ The Attorney-General
No separate records are kept by the Crown Prosecution Service of prosecutions arising from cases investigated by the anti-terrorist squad. Nor were separate records kept by the Director of Public Prosecutions before the inception of the Crown Prosecution Service. Therefore, it would not be possible to give an accurate answer to the hon. Member's question.
