To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, with reference to the Written Statement of 26 June 2014, Official Report, column 35W, on potential miscarriages of justice, what progress Mark Ellison has made in his review; and how many cases have been referred to the Criminal Cases Review Commission for its consideration of whether cases should be referred to the appellate courts.

Mr Ellison is reviewing cases in line with the terms of reference that Home Secretary published on 26 June 2014. He is intending to provide a progress report to the Attorney General by the end of March 2015. In the meantime it would be inappropriate for me to comment while this Review is ongoing.
