Mr. Bowles (by Private Notice)

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has any statement to make about the public inquiry into the loss of the "Empress of Canada."

The Minister of Transport (Mr. Alan Lennox-Boyd)

Yes, Sir. I have now considered the report of the preliminary inquiry into the loss of this vessel and have decided to order a formal investigation in public under the Merchant Shipping Acts.
