HC Deb 19 January 1949 vol 460 c157
40. Air-Commodore Harvey

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will now state the result of the inquiries concerning the shooting down of the Mosquito aircraft in the Eastern Mediterranean area on 20th November. 1948.

Mr. McNeil

An interim report has been received from the Acting Mediator. He has not yet succeeded in establishing the facts of the incident, but his staff have expressed the view that the loss of the aircraft may have been due to an accident. His Majesty's Government have asked the Acting Mediator to undertake further investigations.

Air-Commodore Harvey

Can the right hon. Gentleman say if any high level reconnaissances took place since this date. 20th November, 1948?
