Fatal Accident Inquiry Into The Sumburgh Helicopter Crash In August 2013

EDM number 867 in 2017-19, proposed by Alistair Carmichael on 29/01/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Aviation and Death.

That this House recalls the helicopter crash in August 2013 in which a Eurocopter AS332L2 Super Puma Mk 2 crashed into the sea two nautical miles west of Sumburgh, Shetland with four fatalities; notes that both the Air Accident Investigation Branch and Police Scotland have conducted and concluded their investigations into the circumstances of the crash; further notes that, despite this, no date has been set by the Lord Advocate for the holding of a Fatal Accident Inquiry into the deaths of the four passengers killed in the crash, contributing to the continued distress of the families of the deceased and to the continuing concerns of many people working in the North Sea about the safety of the helicopter fleet servicing the industry; and calls on the Lord Advocate to instruct the earliest possible holding of the Fatal Accident Inquiry into the circumstances surrounding this tragic event.

This motion has been signed by a total of 9 MPs.
