Murder Review

Asked if the Murder Review element regarding reasonable force would now be speeded up, the PMOS repeated his apology of yesterday as the issues had been confused. The question of reasonable force was being looked at separately from the Murder Review. As with any new proposal for legislation, the question asked was whether it was practical in terms of case law and court, or would it be better to issue new guidelines.

Asked if the reasonable force issue was a new decision for review, the PMOS said that it was constantly being looked at, but we did accept that there was confusion in the public mind, and clarification was needed. He stressed that as the Mercer Bill had not been published, we did not know what it contained.
