HC Deb 24 January 1996 vol 270 cc231-2W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Attorney-General if he will review the Crown Prosecution Service decision in respect of prosecution of the operator of the truck with defective brakes which killed six people at Sowerby bridge in Yorkshire. [11093]

The Attorney-General

On 1 December 1995, the divisional court refused an application for judicial review of the decision of the Crown Prosecution Service not to prosecute any individual or company for manslaughter arising out of the accident at Sowerby bridge. In doing so, the court commented on the evidence. Once the transcript of the judgment is received a decision can be made on what further action, if any, should be taken.
