HC Deb 18 July 1994 vol 247 cc34-5W
Mr. Mullin

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects the independent review tribunal on miscarriages of justice to be introduced; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Maclean

Legislation will be necessary before the proposed criminal cases review authority can be established. I cannot at present say when this legislation will be introduced, but my hope is that this will be at the earliest practicable date.
