§ Mr. Spearing
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list(a) the cost to date of transcribing the proceedings of the reconvened inquest into the victims of the Marchioness disaster and (b) the charge that is made to a (i) relative and (ii) other interested party to (1) peruse the transcript and (2) purchase a copy. 
§ Mr. Sackville
I understand that the cost of typing the transcription was £6,000. Under the present rules the charge for supplying a copy to an interested person, including relatives, would be £2,400. There is no charge for inspecting relevant documents.
