§ Mr. Cash
To ask the Solicitor-General pursuant to her answer to the hon. Member for Stone of 10 July 2003, ref 124822, what response she has received from the United States Administration on why Mr. Feroz Abbasi and Mr. Moazzam Begg have been detained; and what discussions she has held with the Crown Prosecution Service on whether the information received is adequate to found a criminal prosecution in the UK against Mr. Abbasi and Mr. Begg. 
§ The Solicitor-General
The US Administration confirmed to the Attorney-General that its view is that all the detainees in Guantanamo Bay, including Feroz Abbasi and Moazzam Begg, have been detained as enemy combatants under the laws of armed conflict. It is not the policy or practice of the CPS to comment on whether a prosecution is likely to be commenced in individual cases.
