asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many fatal casualties there were in 1986 arising from incidents where security forces in Northern Ireland opened fire on vehicles taken without their owners' consent.

[pursuant to his reply, 14 May 1987]: One man was shot dead by troops as he left the scene of a shooting attack on a security forces base in Londonderry in a stolen car. The rifle used in the attack was found in the vehicle. This was the only incident during 1986 in which a fatality resulted from the security forces opening fire on a vehicle taken without the owner's consent.
