§ Dr. Godman
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if there is to be a fatal accident inquiry concerning the recent death of a prisoner in Her Majesty's prison, Greenock; and if he will make a statement.
§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
[holding answer 15 February 1993]: A fatal accident inquiry will be held into the death on 13 January 1993 of a prisoner in HM prison, Greenock although no date has yet been fixed. It would be improper to comment on the circumstances of the death until after the conclusion of the fatal accident inquiry.
