asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he will make a statement on the incident in October in which British aircraft belonging to his Department were involved in a near miss with a Piper Aztec of Kondair over the North sea.

In accordance with usual practice, the pilot's report of this incident is under investigation by the joint airmiss working group of the national air traffic service. As to whether or not MOD aircraft were involved, it would not be right for me to comment in advance of the conclusion of the joint airmiss working group's investigation.
