HC Deb 11 July 1991 vol 194 c478W
28. Mr. Maginnis

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what has been the cost of the Stevens inquiry to date; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Mawhinney

I understand that up to 3 July the cost of the Stevens inquiry has been £868,480.

Mr. John Stevens, the deputy chief constable of Cambridgeshire, at the request of the chief constable of the RUC, conducted an inquiry into allegations of collusion between members of the security forces in Northern Ireland and loyalist paramilitaries. After a most thorough examination, he presented his report to the Chief Constable on 5 April 1990. Action on the report's conclusions and recommendations is being taken by the police and Army.
