Coroners: Armed Forces

Volume 463: debated on Tuesday 17 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what recent progress has been made in concluding inquests for personnel killed on operational duty overseas since 2003. (149465)

I would refer my hon. Friend to the written ministerial statement made on 20 June that gives details of the progress with these inquests. Since 20 June a further eight military inquests and one inquest of a civilian whose body was repatriated via RAF Brize Norton have been held.
