The sentencing remarks
Sentencing for Attempted Murder
"That the normal level of sentence for the attempted murder of a member of the security forces is in the region of 25 years imprisonment and in some cases a sentence in excess of 25 years may well be proper."
That guideline remains in force today and nothing said in this case is intended to call into question its applicability.
