HC Deb 31 July 1997 vol 299 c604W
Mr. Beggs

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress is being made with the review of the case of Mr. Brendan Callaghan; and if he will make a statement. [12102]

Mr. McLeish

We are presently conducting a detailed examination of the papers submitted on behalf of Mr. Callaghan and of other material that has been obtained in order to establish what issues require further investigation before a decision can be reached on his petition. Depending on the results of that examination, the Crown Office will be requested to conduct detailed investigation of the matter at issue.
