§ Mr. McNamara
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many prisoners for scheduled offences have been transferred from prisons in Northern Ireland to Britain for each of the last 10 years; what was the length of their original sentence; what sentence those now released actually served; and what length of sentence those still in prison still have to serve.
§ Sir Patrick Mayhew
When a prisoner is transferred to Great Britain from Northern Ireland all records concerning the prisoner are passed to the receiving jurisdiction. The information requested is consequently unavailable in Northern Ireland.
