§ Lord Hylton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What progress has been made in the mediation process between the Ministry of Defence and Kenyan tribal people concerning deaths and woundings caused by British unexploded ordnance on military ranges in Kenya. [HL5403]
§ Lord Bach
An agreement was reached at a mediation meeting on 18 and 19 July between the Ministry of Defence and lawyers representing the claimants. The MoD agreed to pay £4,500,000, plus reasonable costs, on a limited liability basis in settlement of the 228 claims already notified and any potential claims of which the lawyers are presently aware but which have not been notified to the Ministry of Defence.
