asked the Attorney-General, in view of the evidence given at the inquest into the death of Danny Barrett in Belfast in July 1981, why the Director of Public Prosecutions for Northern Ireland has declined to bring criminal proceedings; whether, in the light of this evidence, he will ask the Director of Public Prosecutions for Northern Ireland to reconsider his decision; and whether he will make a statement.

The Director has already called for and received the depositions recorded at the inquest on Danny Barrett, which are presently under consideration. In these circumstances I cannot make any statement, but I will in due course write to the hon. Member.
