HC Deb 20 January 1997 vol 288 c453W
Mr. Soley

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will publish a list of sunken ships which are listed as war graves indicating their approximate location. [12016]

Mr. Soames

Consideration of whether a sunken ship falls to be considered as a war grave, as now defined in the Protection of Military Remains Act 1986, has been on a case-by-case basis. It has not in the past proved necessary to compile a list of such vessels, and to do so now would be possible only at disproportionate cost.
