To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many relatives of aircrew killed in flying accidents have been able to benefit from compensation from his Department, following the repeal of section 10 of the Crown Proceedings Act.

My Department has received no claims from relatives of aircrew killed in flying accidents since the Crown Proceedings (Armed Forces) Act 1987 became law on 15 May. Any claims for compensation will be dealt with on their merits and on the basis of any legal liability on the part of the Ministry of Defence.
