HC Deb 20 March 1967 vol 743 c198W
Mr. Albert Evans

asked the Secretary of State for Defence, what action he has taken following the drowning in February 1966 of two men of the Royal Engineers when using defective lifejackets while on exercise on the Thames at Windsor.

Mr. Boyden

A committee appointed last year by one of my predecessors is about to make its report. It recommends new safety regulations, which will be brought into force to govern the sport of canoeing in the Army.
