Data Loss: Rosemary Nelson Inquiry

Volume 702: debated on Tuesday 24 June 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What were the circumstances that led to the loss of a disc containing confidential data by the Rosemary Nelson inquiry; whether the loss has been attributed to a member of the inquiry team or to a staff member; whether the investigation by the Police Service of Northern Ireland has been completed; and if so, what was the outcome. [HL3860]

The loss of this disc by the Rosemary Nelson inquiry is currently being investigated by the PSNI and it would be inappropriate for me to comment further. However initial advice from police is that the loss was accidental.
