§ 100. Mr. BILLING
asked the Undersecretary of State for War whether courts of inquiry are still held on the deaths of airmen which occur while flying in this country?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
Yes, Sir; in all cases of accident, but not necessarily when the casualty occurs on active service.
§ Mr. BILLING
Was the attention of the hon. Gentleman called to the reply given to this question by the Parliamentary Secretary to the Air Board in which he directly contradicted that and said that it was impossible?
§ Mr. OUTHWAITE
Will the bon. Gentleman say why the next of kin are forbidden to be present at these Courts of Inquiry?
