§ Mr. Mike O'Brien
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what estimated date of release has been given to Anthony Charles Jeffs; when he is to be released on. licence; and what warnings have been given to him to avoid making statements after release which may be offensive to the victim's family or colleagues.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
No estimated date of release has been given to Anthony Charles Jeffs. My right hon. and learned Friend has no power to consider the release of this prisoner unless the Parole Board so recommends. The next review of Mr. Jeffs's case by the Parole Board is not due to begin until March 1996.
Mr. Jeffs is detained in closed prison conditions where specific attention is being paid to his attitude and behaviour towards his victims' families or their colleagues.
