HC Deb 09 March 1993 vol 220 c479W
Mr. George Robertson

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if the sworn affidavit made on 24 May 1990 by Her Majesty's consul in Baghdad relating to the death of Mr. J. G. Glass was sent to the coroner's court; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The British embassy in Baghdad sent the then consul's sworn affidavit to the appropriate coroner's office who passed it to the head coroner before the inquest on 28 August 1990.

So far as we are aware, the Iraqi authorities have charged no one with any crime in connection with the death of Mr. Glass.
