§ 18. Mr. Simmonds
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he can make any statement regarding the recent loss of an Imperial Airways flying boat in the Mediterranean?
§ Sir K. Wood
An investigation into the cause of this accident is now in progress and I am therefore not in a position to make a statement at the present time.
§ Mr. Simmonds
Will my right hon. Friend carefully investigate whether in fact the route now adopted by these flying boats is more hazardous from a meteorological point of view than the route adopted in peace-time, and, if necessary, consider the question of adopting some modified route?
