HC Deb 04 April 1989 vol 150 c70W
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.
