HC Deb 17 April 1946 vol 421 c2662
II. Mr. Derek Walker-Smith

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he has yet received the report of the proceedings of the court of inquiry into the shooting in Bucharest of 184570 Flying-Officer K. R. Archer.

Mr. Strachey

I have received a preliminary report that this officer was killed in a tragic accident on the night of 1st-2nd April. A court of inquiry has been held, but the proceedings have not yet reached this country.

Mr. Walker-Smith

Will a report of the proceedings be made available to Archer's father when they are received, as he has been caused considerable anxiety by the conflicting reports of the cause of the accident?

Mr. Strachey

I think I should have to have notice of that Question.
