Royal Ordnance Plc, based in my constituency, has never produced anti- personnel landmines. The team in Chorley are experts not only in mine clearance but also in the clearance of other explosive ordnance and I am keen that this ex- pertise should be passed on.
I am not calling for money from the Diana fund to be given to British Aerospace or for BAe to be given contracts with donated money to clear the mines. All I want is for the expertise we have in Chorley to be passed on in a school to train people in techniques to clear mines, which we know was one of the late princess's principal concerns.
