§ 76. Mr. HORE-BELISHA
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he can make a statement [...]n respect of the disaster to the flying-boat "Iris" at Plymouth?
§ Mr. MONTAGUE
A Court of Inquiry is now being assembled, and I am not therefore in a position to add any-thing to the information which has already been published. I am sure the House would wish me to take this opportunity of conveying publicly an expression of its deepest sympathy to the relatives of those who lost their lives in this most regrettable accident to one of our largest flying boats.
§ Sir W. BRASS
Can the hon. Member assure the House that the result of this inquiry will be published, so as to reassure the public?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
Can the hon. Member say whether the bereaved relatives have received pensions in this case?
