Support For Members Who Have Chosen Not To Take Their Seats
Mr Paul Murphy (Secretary of State, Northern Ireland Office; Torfaen, Labour)
The hon. Gentleman may recall from, I think, the statement on the Northern bank robbery some weeks ago that Lembit Öpik asked whether the leader of the Liberal Democrats could be given some sort of briefing on the robbery by the Chief Constable. I promised to pass on his request to the Chief Constable, whose decision it must ultimately be.
