HC Deb 24 November 1995 vol 267 c345W
Mr. Foulkes

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what is his policy on the timing of the publication of military aircraft accident summaries in relation to the timing of inquests or fatal accident inquiries. [1295]

Mr. Soames

Military aircraft accident summaries of aircraft accidents involving fatalities are published by my Department after the next of kin have been notified of the outcome of the board of inquiry. The timing of inquests and fatal accident inquiries is entirely a matter for the coroner or procurator fiscal, as appropriate.
