HC Deb 16 January 1992 vol 201 c632W
Mr. Mullin

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he decided to answer no further questions on the Birmingham pub bombings investigations; and if he will give the reasons.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

The chief constable of the West Midlands Police is responsible for the conduct of these investigations. It would be improper for my right hon. Friend to comment on them while they are continuing, because this might prejudice their outcome.
