HC Deb 10 December 1947 vol 445 c990
25. Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation if he is aware that the fact-finding inquiry on the Pan-American Airway Constellation accident at Meyadin, Syria, on 18th June, 1947, in which seven British subjects were killed, has now been published, stating that the aircraft was not provided with maps or charts of emergency landing fields, including the R.A.F. base at Habbaniya; and to what extent such information is and has been available to civilian operating companies.

Mr. Lindgren

No, Sir. The Interim Report of the Fact-Finding Committee makes no mention of the lack of maps or charts, and the final report has not yet been received. British aeronautical charts are on sale through authorised chart sellers.
