24. Mr. Simmonds

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he can make any statement with regard to the attack on a British aircraft by British fighter aircraft over North Kent on Sunday, 3rd March?

Sir K. Wood

No, Sir. This regrettable accident is being investigated by a Court of Inquiry.

Mr. Simmonds

Will my right hon. Friend take care that it is not too readily assumed that this was only a human error, and will he carefully investigate the system and see whether any changes are necessary?

Sir K. Wood

Yes, Sir. an investigation will be made.
