HC Deb 22 May 1997 vol 294 c109W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to abolish the primary purpose rule. [794]

Mr. Straw

In our manifesto, we said that we would reform the current system to remove the arbitrary, ineffective and unfair results that can follow from the primary purpose rule. We shall make an announcement about this soon.
