§ Mr. Miller
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what inquiries he has commissioned into the circumstances which led to Mr. Neil Jones being placed on probation; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Nicholas Baker
I understand that Mr. Jones was sentenced to probation on 21 July 1994 at Chester magistrates court. It was for the court to decide on the appropriate sentence in the circumstances of that case, and I cannot comment on that decision.841W
