HC Deb 02 February 1983 vol 36 c106W
Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in the light of proceedings at the special courts that sat in Oxford on 2 September 1982 following Operation Major, he will review the operation of the Bail Act 1976 and the guidance issued to courts thereon.

Mr. Mayhew

No. We have no evidence that the Bail Act is not working satisfactorily to balance the interests of defendants with those of the community.
