§ 32. Mr. PERKINS
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that the Imperial Airways liner "Scipio" crashed at Mirabella on 22nd August, resulting in the loss of two lives; that the inspector of accidents reported that one of the reasons for the accident was that the pilot misjudged the approach and consequently had to open out his engines; and whether all the engines then responded?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
I am aware of the facts mentioned in the first two parts of the question. As regards the last part, there was no evidence to suggest that any of the engines failed to respond.
