HC Deb 15 October 1991 vol 196 c136W
Mr. McNamara

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many payments of compensation for(a) unlawful arrest and (b) false imprisonment were made as a result of (i) decisions of the courts and (ii) out-of-court settlements during 1990; and if he will list any conditions which were placed on out-of-court settlements made during 1990.

Dr. Mawhinney

The statistical information requested is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. Out-of-court settlements are arrived at by mutual consent of the parties concerned, any terms which may be part of a settlement are for them to decide.

Forward to
