asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many suspected murderers, bombers or perpetrators of any other terrorist crimes are now believed by the United Kingdom security forces to be living in the Republic of Ireland.
I refer the hon. Gentleman to the answer I gave him on 9 November 1981.—[Vol. 12, c. 45.]>
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many applications have been made by the Royal Ulster Constabulary for the extradition of suspected terrorists from the Republic of Ireland; how many such applications have been successful; what are the reasons given for the failure to extradite these suspected terrorists; and if he will give full details of the persons and crimes for which extradition applications have failed.
I refer the hon. Gentleman to the answers I gave him on 9 November 1981. Since then, the Royal Ulster Constabulary has forwarded a further arrest warrant to the Garda Siochana in connection with a case involving murder. The RUC is still awaiting the outcome of this application.—[Vol. 12, c. 45–46. ]
