In July 2008, the DPP decided there would be no prosecutions on foot of the McAndrew report. Mr Bailey wants the state to provide discovery of all documents, reports, records, statements, notes and memoranda of interviews generated by gardaí in their investigation"

It is on today's Order Paper because of the failure of successive Dublin Governments and the Dublin courts to face up to their responsibilities.

If the Bland case is a lesson in how the Dublin authorities would treat one of its own, the political significance of that should never be lost on Unionists in the House and outside."?WHAT BECAME OF THESE ALLEGATIONS?
