HC Deb 18 November 1991 vol 199 cc17-8W
Mr. Mullin

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the amount of damages paid by police authorities to residents in Brixton, the St. Paul's area of Bristol and Toxteth for damage to property following riots in those areas.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

The Receiver for the Metropolitan police district, the Avon and Somerset and the Merseyside county councils were the relevant compensation authorities for claims under the Riot (Damages) Act 1886 arising from the disorders in Brixton, Bristol and Toxteth in 1981. The Home Office was not involved in the processing of claims.
