§ Mr. Mullin
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) if he will call for a report from the chief constable of the West Midlands police as to the cost, including salaries, of the inquiry into the Birmingham pub bombings since March 1990;
(2) if he will call for a report from the West Midlands chief constable as to whether the inquiry into the Birmingham pub bombings is continuing; how many officers are involved; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Charles Wardle
All that I can add to the answer which was given to the hon. Member on 16 January 1992, at columns634–35, is that an analysis of the cost of the inquiry, which started in April 1991, will be prepared at its conclusion.634W
