"Today I have accepted a Crown Censure on behalf of the Army in relation to the death of Cadet Kaylee McIntosh, while on Cadet Camp at Loch Carnan in August 2007. We recognise the failings by the Army and once again we apologise unreservedly for how they contributed to Kaylee’s death. The Army will continue to support the McIntosh family for as long as they need it.
"I have been personally involved in the proceedings since the tragedy occurred and I am satisfied that the Army has taken actions in a number of important areas as a result of findings of the Fatal Accident Inquiry. We have studied the Health and Safety Executive’s full report and have acted to address any additional areas of concern".
