§ Mr. Stinchcombe
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when in the last five years the Council of Europe's Committee for the Prevention of Torture has visited the United Kingdom; how many months elapsed between each visit and the publication of the Committee's report; and when he expects the report of the Committee's most recent visit to be published.
§ Mr. Mike O'Brien
The report of the Committee's third visit to the United Kingdom, in May 1994, was published in March 1996. The report of the Committee's fourth visit, in September 1997, has not yet been published; that is a matter for the Committee. The Committee's fifth visit took place between 30 November and 8 December 1999.
