§ 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.
