Mr. Foulkes

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has received regarding the sinking of the Mhari following the publication of his inspector's report in December 1985; and whether he will now consider the possibility of raising the wreck for further examination.

Mr. Portillo

Representations have been received from relatives of those lost with this vessel, from hon. Members and from members of the public.

The Department has no responsibility for the removal of wrecks and does not plan to raise that of the Mhari for examination.
