Armed Forces: Coroners

Volume 492: debated on Tuesday 12 May 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the outcome of his Department's challenge was to the inquest verdict in the case of Ronald George Maddison which the then Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State announced in the written ministerial statement of 21 December 2004, Official Report, column 168WS; and if he will make a statement.

The Judicial Review was scheduled to take place on 13 February 2006 in the High Court. However before the hearing was due to commence, Counsel representing the Maddison family offered a possible resolution of the issues to be addressed, which the Ministry of Defence found acceptable. The presiding judges, set to hear the Judicial Review, endorsed the terms of the agreement. This therefore concluded matters.
