To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects to conclude the inquiry into the extent of his Department's liability to Mr. and Mrs. Paul Reeman as a result of the failure of Cornelis Johanna to pass the stability test on 15 November 1990.

I am awaiting advice as to the extent of the Department's liability, if any, to the present owners of the Cornelis Johanna.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport further to his letter of 20 December 1991, to the hon. Member for South Hams, if he will set out the results of the inclining experiment so as to establish more precisely the degree to which the stability of the Cornelis Johanna BM 204 is apparently deficient and assist in determining any remedial measures which may be required; and if he will make a statement.

The results of any inclining experiment conducted will be made available to all the parties concerned and advice will be given on any remedial measures necessary to bring the stability up to the required standard.
