HC Deb 25 January 1996 vol 270 c307W
Mr. Allason

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the consideration by the Parole Board of the application by Martin Fenton, currently serving a life sentence for murder. [10252]

Miss Widdecombe

Mr. Fenton's case was last considered by the Parole Board on 1 December 1995. The board did not recommend his release on life licence.

On 14 January 1996, Mr. Fenton suffered a cardiac arrest. He was immediately admitted to hospital where he is still serious ill. I shall be writing to the hon. Member about that.
