On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. In the light of the decision today by the Irish Supreme Court to reject this Government's application for the extradition to Northern Ireland of the Maze escapers, Finucane and Clarke, and as we must deduce that the real reason stems from the Irish Republic's legal claim to jurisdiction over Northern Ireland, as confirmed in the McGimpsey judgment a few days ago, the logical consequence of which is that the Irish Republic could not extradite to territory that it now deems to be its own, has the Attorney-General said to you, Mr. Speaker, that he intends to make an early statement to the House on this serious matter?
