MoD should be liable for forces training deaths, say MPs

 

The Ministry of Defence should be liable for prosecution over deaths of members of the armed forces during training, say MPs.

 

The Commons Defence Committee says the MoD should no longer enjoy crown immunity from corporate manslaughter laws in cases of gross negligence.

 

Since the start of 2000, 135 personnel have died while training.

 

The MoD said deaths in training were rare, but that "more needs to be done" and it would consider the report.

 

"The lives of serving personnel are worth no less than those of civilians," said the committee.

 

"Those responsible for their deaths must be equally liable under the law."
