§ 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.
