§ Mr. Alex Carlile
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he has any proposals for change in the structure of remit of the life sentence review board; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Cope
No. We shall, however, be examining our life sentence review procedures in the light of the Government's response to the recently published report of the House of Lords Select Committee on murder and life imprisonment, which included recommendations about the review system in Great Britain.
