HC Deb 22 January 1931 vol 247 c374W
Rear-Admiral SUETER

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air when the Commissioners' report on the R101 airship disaster will be made public; and whether he will consider the appointment of a small committee to go into the whole question of future airship development in this country and deal with any questions arising out of the report of the Commissioners?


As regards the first part of the question, owing to the need for certain intricate technical calculations, I understand that the Court has not yet finally completed its report. It is impossible, therefore, at present to name a definite date for publication. It would be premature to take any decision as to further procedure until the report has been presented, but note will be taken of the hon. and gallant Member's suggestion.
