Persons making claims against MoD as a result of illness resulting from 1983 and 1988 fires at COD Donnington, Telford, Shropshire.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

I am seeking statistical information regarding persons who may have made claims for personal injury resulting from illnesses, including mesothelioma, following exposure to the products of combustion and fragments of building materials ejected by the two major fires at the Command Ordnance Depot at Donnington, Telford Shropshire in 1983 and 1988.

I seek, in particular, the number of claims made against the MoD and the numbers of claims rejected, settled (whether via an ex gratia payment or not) and the number of claims which went for trial.

Yours faithfully,

Stewart Kidd

Dear Ministry of Defence,
