HC Deb 21 December 1989 vol 164 c452W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Attorney-General what requests the Crown prosecution service has received for documents concerning Jeremiah Miller, a prisoner at Her Majesty's prison Walton; what documents he has released; if he has withheld any information; and if he will make a statement.

The Attorney-General

The Crown prosecution service has received requests for the disclosure of documents relating to police activity during the course of the investigation of an offence of attempted robbery which occurred at Upton, Wirral on 24 July 1986. Jeremiah Miller was subsequently convicted of offences arising out of that incident.

Requests have been received both from Jeremiah Miller and from solicitors acting on his behalf; in addition, a request by Jeremiah Miller has been channelled to the CPS through the chief constable of Merseyside.

I am satisfied that the Crown prosecution service has responded fully and properly to those requests.
