Abergele: Explosion

Volume 712: debated on Monday 13 July 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will release all relevant documents relating to the deaths by explosion at Abergele on the evening before the investiture of the Prince of Wales in July 1969. [HL4605]

Information of historical and national interest dating back to the time of the investiture would have been transferred to the National Archives. Some information selected for preservation by the National Archives may be retained in departments for security reasons.

The Home Office is currently searching for any information that might be held and will then assess its sensitivity to decide whether or not it can be released. I will write to the noble Lord as soon as a more substantive response is possible.
