HC Deb 30 July 1982 vol 28 c741W
Mr. Cryer

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether a board of inquiry was held into the accident at fleet maintenance base, Her Majesty's dockyard, Devonport, on 18 April 1980; and what recommendations were subsequently made by the board as a result of its inquiries.

Mr. Blaker

A board of inquiry was held into the fatal accident that occurred in the Fleet maintenance base, HM Dockyard Devonport on 18 April 1980. I regret that I am unable to comment further as a case relating to this accident has now been set down for hearing before a civil court and the matter is therefore sub judice.
