To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress the Avon and Somerset constabulary are making in their inquiries into the new statements presented to him concerning the Guildford and Woolwich pub bombings case; and if he will make a statement.

I understand that the Avon and Somerset police have encountered certain difficulties in interviewing witnesses and in obtaining access to documents; and that in consequence they have thought it necessary to write to solicitors representing the four convicted persons to express their concern. As a result, the inquiries are, unfortunately, taking longer than had been expected.
