asked the Attorney-General if the recommendations of the Sixth Interim Report of the Law Revision Committee are going to be implemented.

The Government are unable to hold out any hope at present of introducing legislation to deal with the subject matter of this report, which is complicated and not entirely non-controversial.

asked the Attorney-General if he will now reconstitute the Law Revision Committee and designate subjects for it to consider.

I will consult my noble Friend the Lord Chancellor and will then write to the hon. Member.
