HC Deb 28 April 1966 vol 727 cc49-50W
Mr. Kitson

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he is satisfied with the safety precautions before demonstrations are given by the Royal Signals motorcyclist team; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Reynolds

On 12th April there was an accident in which a soldier was injured during rehearsals by the Royal Signals Motor Cycle Display Team. The commanding officer has ordered an inquiry and until this has been completed this item will not be performed again.

If the inquiry shows that changes are desirable in the interests of safety, they will be made.
