Dear Sir Brian, Thank you for your letter of Jan 7 and enclosures.

These cases raise the question of whether life imprisonment ever means what it says.

If these two are to be released - or at any rate if Brady is to be released - then no one other than the homicidal maniac will ever suffer imprisonment or detention for the rest of their natural lives.

Yours sincerely Geoffrey Lane
