§ Mr. Livingstone
To ask the Attorney-General whether he will paaaacute for assaulting Martin Foran the four prison officers from Walton prison against whom £750 damages were awarded in favour of Mr. Foran at Newport county court.
§ The Attorney-General
No. Such proceedings would not be in conformity with the code for Crown paaaacutors. I add, in the interests of accuracy, that in the civil proceedings to which the hon. Member refers the action was stayed upon terms that £750 be paid to the plaintiff, with costs. No admission of liability was made.
