HC Deb 23 January 1991 vol 184 cc259-60W
Mr. Viggers

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will give his best estimate of the number of prospective claims communicated to his Department and which were barred from action when section 10 of the Crown Proceedings Act 1949 was in force.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

No central records were kept of such prospective claims prior to 1978. However, 805 claims have been recorded as being received since late 1978.
