HC Deb 18 June 1992 vol 209 c645W
Mr. Loyden

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he will make a decision on the case concerning the conviction of the Everton football supporters which had been referred to him; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Jack

I wrote to the hon. Member on 8 June. He will now be aware that we have concluded, after careful consideration, that there are insufficient grounds to justify intervention in the convictions by granting free pardons.
