§ Mr. Bruce
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will take steps to require that information about 67W accidents involving Royal Air Force aircraft is passed on to the original manufacturers, civil airworthiness authorities and thence to commercial users of similar aircraft, in view of the findings of the report of the crash of the Bristow Tiger helicopter G-T1GP at Aberdeen airport on 4 July 1983.
§ Mr. Butler
There are well established procedures which ensure that all necessary information about accidents involving Royal Air Force aircraft is passed to the design authority for the aircraft type, normally the manufacturer. If at the time there are similar aircraft listed on the British Civil Register the information is also passed to the Civil Aviation Authority to enable them to advise civil operators.
