§ Mr. Lidington
To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what plans he has to review his instructions to the broadcasting authorities concerning the broadcasting of direct speech by supporters of terrorism; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Brooke
I am undertaking a review of the notices first issued to the broadcasting authorities in October 1988 by the Home Secretary concerning the reporting of direct speech by members of terrorist organisations and their supporters. I will announce the results of this review as soon as is consistent with a thorough examination.
