§ Mr. Trimble
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when he expects Mr. John Rowe's report on the operation in 1993 of the Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Act 1991 to be available.
§ Sir Patrick Mayhew
I have today arranged for copies of Mr. John Rowe's report to be placed in the Library of the House. I welcome this independent report which will serve as a basis for Parliament to debate the annual renewal of the Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Act 1991.
I am most grateful to Mr. Rowe for his work in carrying out his review of the operation of the Act in 1993. His report will receive careful and detailed consideration.
