asked the Attorney-General, further to his written answer of 6 May, and in the light of the 10 to one verdict of the coroner's court in the case of Michael Delaney, whether he will consider further the decision of the Director of Public Prosecutions not to prosecute the driver; and if he will make a statement.

The Director of Public Prosecutions has reconsidered the decision made in the case referred to by the right hon. Member. However. the evidence given at the inquest into the death of Michael Delaney did not disclose any basis upon which a prosecution could be brought. The Director cannot, therefore, alter his original decision.
