HC Deb 23 February 1943 vol 387 c13
24. Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Secretary of State for War the circumstances of the death of Victor Bragg, Stoke-on-Trent; why it was left to the parents to take legal action after which they were awarded by the High Court £214 compensation for the loss of their son; and as £129 of this went in legal charges, will he have a full investigation made and give the case further consideration?

Sir J. Grigg

This case is under investigation, and I will communicate with my hon. Friend in due course.
