HC Deb 27 May 1993 vol 225 cc681-2W
Mr. Llwyd

To ask the Attorney-General how many Select Committee recommendations have been made about, and how many accepted by, his Department since April 1989.

The Attorney-General

Since April 1989, 60 recommendations by the Select Committee on Home Affairs have been made in respect of the Crown prosecution service arising out of three separate reports. One recommendation, which was accepted, was made in the Select Committee's first report in the 1989–90 Session on racial attacks and harassment (HC 17). Fifty-one were made in the fourth report in the same session on the Crown prosecution service (HC 118). Of these, 30 have been accepted and 11 were concerned with matters already being addresed in other areas. The remaining eight recommendations were made in the report on domestic violence printed on 25 February 1993 (HC 245). The Government's response to these is currently being formulated.

No recommendations in this period have been made in respect of the other Departments for which I am responsible.
