72. Mr. J. JONES
asked the Chief Secretary whether, in connection with the loss sustained by Mr. Doran owing to damage to his artificial leg by members of the Royal Air Force on the 6th May last, he will state the method of inquiry to ascertain whether Mr. Doran is entitled to compensation; whether the inquiries are being made by the Royal Air Force or other military body; and, if so, whether he will give instructions that this matter shall be inquired into by civil servants of the Crown rather than by people who may have been implicated in the affair?
§ Sir H. GREENWOOD
I called for a full report on this case when it was brought to my notice by the hon. Member. I regret that I am not in a position to give the further information now asked for. As soon as the question of compensation has been settled, I will communicate with the hon. Member.
