1. Reliability: what consideration has the MoD given to wider questions of the reliability of the type of aircraft involved in the crash? In particular has the MoD raised with the manufacturers of the aircraft (or any suppliers of equipment or software) questions of reliability? Have pilots raised concerns about the safety of this type of aircraft or its equipment?
2. Findings of negligence: what is the MoD's doctrine and practice in reaching findings of error of judgement and negligence against pilots who have died in aircraft crashes? What steps have been taken to meet the concerns expressed by families of the pilots killed in the Chinook crash about the ways in which the findings of the inquiry were reached?
