HC Deb 10 January 2000 vol 342 cc26-7W
Mr. John M. Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the availability of Inspector Hughes's report to the Cullen Inquiry into the Dunblane tragedy. [104011]

Dr. Reid

Sergeant Hughes's report was made available to the Cullen Inquiry as a production. The report contains sensitive information about children (not the children of Dunblane) who attended a summer camp run by Thomas Hamilton in 1991 and alleged offences against them. For these reasons it was considered appropriate that the production should remain closed for 100 years with the Crown Office dealing with any requests for special access meantime.
