To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when he expects to publish the report on Lord Colville's review of the Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Acts 1978 and 1987.

It has been published today (Cm. 1115). I am most grateful to Lord Colville for his comprehensive and detailed report, which deserves to be widely read. The Government will consider carefully his recommendations and in due course bring forward proposals for new legislation. In the meantime, the Government would welcome the views both of hon. Members and of the public at large on the matters addressed in the review.
