HC Deb 03 May 1990 vol 171 cc646-7W
Ms. Short

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will provide full details of any injuries sustained by civilians or members of the security forces as a result of the exchange of fire on the evening of 24 March in Cappagh, County Tyrone; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

On 24 March at Cappagh, County Tyrone, terrorists, without warning, opened fire on a member of the security forces in civilian clothes travelling in a civilian car. The Royal Ulster Constabulary is investigating the incident, including the possibility of any terrorist injuries. However, I can confirm that no member of the security forces or members of the public sustained injuries as a result of this attack.
