§ Mr. Thomason
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to issue a final response to the report of the royal commission on criminal justice. 
§ Mr. Maclean
I have today placed in the Library a copy of the Government's final response to the report of the royal commission on criminal justice.
The royal commission made 352 recommendations. The Government have accepted, wholly or in part, 204 recommendations and 58 remain under consideration in the light of other initiatives and developments. The Government have decided not to implement 46 recommendations. The remaining 44 recommendations are not primarily for the Government, but the response indicates the action that the Government understand to have been taken.
