§ Mr. Simon Hughes
To ask the Attorney-General what representations he has received in the past 12 months from survivors of the sinking of the Marchioness, their relatives, friends and legal advisers; and if he will make a statement. 
The Attorney General
Representations have mainly taken the form of questions by hon. Members in this House and in another place about the progress of the review undertaken by the Crown Prosecution Service, which earlier this year re-examined the evidence given to the inquest jury in combination with the pre-inquest evidence. The Director of Public prosecutions announced on 26 July 1996 that the evidence was insufficient to justify any further criminal proceedings.
I have received no subsequent representations.
