Health and Safety at Work (Prosecutions)

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 1 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many prosecutions for offences under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 have been taken against his Department's personnel since 1976; how many prosecutions were successful in each of the last 10 years; and what percentage this represents of total prosecutions of his Department for such offences in this period. (94236)

The Ministry of Defence is only aware of two such prosecutions over the past five years, one of which was successful. Beyond that the information requested is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
