Al-Yamamah arms deal
The 1992 report into the Al-Yamamah arms deal was withheld from (some?) members of this committee. In October 1994, Tam Dalyell submitted documents to parliament that he claimed proved Mark Thatcher was also involved and received a £12 million commission on the deal signed off by his mother while she was UK Prime Minister. The Public Accounts Committee decided not to investigate.
The Public Accounts Committee criticised the decommissioning of the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing site, noting the cost of decommissioning had now reached £67.5 billion, and there was "no indication of when that cost will stop rising".
