To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will call for a report from the Chief Constable of the Royal Ulster Constabulary as to when the clothes and car belonging to the late Anthony Hughes will be returned to his wife; and if he will make a statement.

[holding answer 1 December 1987]: The motor vehicle and clothing belonging to the late Mr. Anthony Hughes are items of important evidential value to the RUC in its investigations into his death. Until these investigations are completed and it is clear that the items are no longer required either by the Director of Public Prosecutions or Her Majesty's coroner they will need to be retained by the police.
