asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will take steps to bring the law on penalties for default on fines in Northern Ireland into line with that in Scotland and in England and Wales, so that sections 38 to 40 of the Criminal Law Act 1977 may be brought into effect.

In November 1979 a proposal for a draft Criminal Justice (Northern Ireland) Order 1980 which contains an appropriate amendment of the law in Northern Ireland was published. The draft order will be laid before Parliament soon.
