HC Deb 20 May 1998 vol 312 cc387-8W
Mr. William Ross

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if she will list the papers published by her Department in relation to salmon and sea trout in each of the last 10 years indicating which originated from work carried out at Bushmills. [41659]

prisoners and details of claimed allegiance are not maintained. However, due to the segregation of prisoners in HMP Maze in paramilitary affiliated groups it is possible to construe that of the sixteen prisoners transferred 10 aligned themselves to the Provisional IRA, 4 to INLA and 2 to the LVF.

The table indicates the offence, date of sentence, length of sentence, date of transfer to Northern Ireland, the prisoner's current transfer status, date of release applicable in Great Britain and the date of release under remission arrangements in Northern Ireland at the current time.

The impact of the proposed accelerated release scheme on the individual's release dates has required a re-calculation exercise to be undertaken. The exercise is almost complete and the information will be issued shortly to the hon. Gentleman in a written response.

Mr. Paul Murphy

The Department of Agriculture for Northern Ireland has published 78 papers relating to salmon since 1987. All of them originated from the research work carried out at the Bush Salmon Station at Bushmills. A full list of the publications has been placed in the Library of the House. The Department has not published any papers relating to Sea Trout.
