HC Deb 26 January 1999 vol 324 cc178-9W
11. Mr. Dalyell

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the progress of the Crown Office in securing a trial of the suspects of the Lockerbie bombing. [65837]

Mr. McLeish

My noble and learned Friend the Lord Advocate is responsible for the prosecution of the two suspects accused of the Lockerbie bombing. Securing the surrender of the two suspects for trial is, at this stage, a matter within the responsibility of the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth affairs.
