HC Deb 17 May 1965 vol 712 c1012
Mr. William Hamilton

With permission, Mr. Speaker, I wish to make a personal statement.

During the course of the debate on the War Damage Bill last Wednesday I made reference to a Sir John Gilmour as being a shareholder in the Burmah Oil Company. The record shows that I apologised to the hon. Member for Fife, East (Sir J. Gilmour) for the mistake I made in assuming that he was the Sir John Gilmour referred to.

I wish to make it clear that the information supplied to me by the Library staff was, as usual, entirely accurate and that the error made was entirely mine.
