Mr. Chris Mullin ( Sunderland, South) (Lab): I am sympathetic to many of the points that the right hon. Gentleman is making. I was one of those who opposed 90 days. Does he agree that one of the great mysteries is where the suggestion for 90 days came from in the first place? In May, at a conference in front of 200 lawyers in Birmingham, I asked the Director of Public Prosecutions where the pressure for 90 days was coming from. His response was, "It isn't coming from us and it isn't coming from the police."
David Davis: I think that that point answers itself.
