HC Deb 22 February 1990 vol 167 c919W
67. Mr. Tim Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what response he has received to his criminal justice White Paper.

Mr. John Patten

We have invited comments on the proposals in the White Paper "Crime, Justice and Protecting the Public" (Cm 965) by 30 April. The initial reaction has been favourable and my right hon. and learned Friend's statement of 6 February received widespread support in both Houses.
