PRIME MINISTER:

Stephan Adolph Kock

Mr. Meacher : To ask the Prime Minister for what reason Stephan Adolph Kock has special branch protection ; and what other names he uses or has been known by.

The Prime Minister : It is not in the public interest to disclose whether any person has received official protection or not. There is no ministerial responsibility for names by which Mr. Kock is known or has been known.


Lockerbie

Mr. Dalyell : To ask the Prime Minister what representations Her Majesty's Government have received from relatives of those killed in Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie on the need to make inquiries about the statements attributed to Youssef Chaabane, accused of murdering a Jordanian diplomat in a Beirut court; and what response Her Majesty's Government have made.

The Prime Minister : The Lord Advocate has received one letter from a relative of a Lockerbie victim, inquiring about the Crown Office response to the statement attributed to Chaabane. She has been told that, although it appears that what Chaabane said was very far from being a claim of responsibility for the bombing of Pan Am 103, the Crown Office will pursue any further investigation which may be necessary.
