(updated by pamphlet No. 15) (see also plastic Bullets briefing No. 40)
This is an updated version of a document issued by the Committee on the Administration of Justice prior to its Annual Conference in May, 1983.
Its purpose is to provide straightforward factual and legal information to ordinary members of the public about the use of plastic bullets in Northern Ireland.
We have not included elaborate data concerning the situations in which plastic bullets have been used, nor have we examined the legal position in intricate detail.
Our modest aim has been to provide a comparatively short and readable account of the topic so that awareness of the issues involved might be increased.
