To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what her Department is taking to expedite the conclusion of the Health and Safety Executive investigation into the deaths of Almamo Jammeh, Ousmane Diaby, Bangally Dukureh, Saibo Sillah and Muhamadou Jagana, at the Hawkeswood Metal Recycling site in Birmingham in 2016.

My sympathy goes out to the families, friends and those closely affected by the deaths of the five workers and also to the survivor of the incident, who was seriously injured.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is an independent regulator it would not be appropriate for me to comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation. I am assured by HSE that the investigation is progressing and following due legal process.
