HC Deb 09 January 1996 vol 269 c105W
Mr. Beggs

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if it is the policy of Her Majesty's Government to take steps to secure co-operation from the United States Government for the extradition of George Finbar Ross to Northern Ireland. [7371]

Sir John Wheeler

The question of seeking the extradition of Mr. Ross remains under active consideration.

It is not the practice of the relevant authorities to give details of the actions being taken to secure the apprehension of wanted persons or the progress thereof: to do so could undermine the effectiveness of those actions.
