To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, if he will make a statement on the deaths which have occurred at Deepcut barracks. [99870]

The deaths of Privates Sean Benton, Cheryl James, Geoff Gray and James Collinson at Deepcut remain the subject of an ongoing investigation by the Surrey police. The Army has always co-operated fully with the police in the course of their enquiries, and continues to do so. It would be inappropriate to comment on the specific circumstances surrounding the deaths, or hold any further inquiry, whilst current investigations continue.
