HC Deb 23 January 1998 vol 304 cc695-6W
Mr. Mullin

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the outcome of recent discussions regarding the release from prison of convicted paedophiles; and if he will make a statement. [24663]

Ms Quin

We are still considering, in the light of problems arising in recent cases involving the placement of sexual offenders following release from prison, what further legislation or other changes would help to protect the public.
