§ Rev. Ian Paisley
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland under what circumstances Captain Robert Nairac was kidnapped by the IRA; what evidence he has that he was murdered in the Republic; and what representations he has made to the Government in Dublin.
§ Mr. Mason
As the hon. Member will know, six men—five in Northern Ireland and one in the Republic—have been charged with the murder of Captain Robert Nairac and the circumstances of his disappearance are, therefore,sub judice. I understand that in their investigations into Captain Nairac's disappearance the police had the full co-operation of the authorities in the Irish Republic.
