To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when he last discussed the case of those found guilty of the Birmingham pub bombings with representatives of the Government of the Republic of Ireland.

This is a matter for my right hon. and learned Friend the Home Secretary and is not within the ambit of the Anglo-Irish Agreement, but the matter was referred to during a meeting of the Anglo-Irish Intergovernmental Conference on 30 November 1989.
