To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many claims for compensation, arising from the IRA bomb at the forensic science laboratory at Newtownbreda in September 1992 are still to be concluded.
Responsibility for the subject in question has been delegated to the Compensation Agency under its chief executive, Mr. J. Robinson. I have asked him to arrange for a reply to be given.
