HC Deb 21 June 1995 vol 262 c269W
Mr. Watson

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to announce the outcome of his review of the sentences on Abdul Qayyum Raja and Mohammed Riaz. [29193]

Mr. Michael Forsyth

Written representations have recently been received on behalf of both those mandatory life sentence prisoners. I expect to receive further representation shortly. Thereafter, the reconsideration of the period to be served for retribution and deterrence in each case—the tariff—will be completed as soon as possible.
