§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will now set up an independent inquiry into the activities of an agent provocateur in cases of alleged political violence in Wales in the late 1960s; and if he will make a statement on the recent acknowledgement by a retired special branch officer of the existence of such an agent.
§ Mr. Howard
[holding answer 22 October 1993]: I have asked for a report from the North Wales police on the interview to which the hon. Member refers and shall write to him once I have considered it.
