HC Deb 07 February 1992 vol 203 cc307-8W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received and if he will refer to the Court of Appeal for review of the sentence against Jeremiah Miller, presently a prisoner at Garth prison; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. John Patten

I have received and considered representations on the case from the hon. Member for Liverpool, Mossley Hill and from one other hon. Member. In the absence of anything new that appears to touch the safety of the conviction, there are not on present information grounds to justify intervention. I am always ready to consider any alleged new evidence.
