HC Deb 12 February 1941 vol 368 c1374W
Mr. Wedgwood

asked the Secretary of State for War when the military officers of the "Dunera" are expected to report; whether he intends to appoint a committee of inquiry into the allegations made from Australia now in his hands; and, if so, will he state the terms of reference, composition and powers of the committee as to taking evidence, legal representation and publicity?

Mr. Law

All the officers and men concerned have not yet returned to this country, and I am not yet able to say when all those who have not arrived are to be expected. In the meantime, preliminary investigations are in progress, with a view to holding a court of inquiry. The constitution of the court, and its terms of reference, have not yet been determined. A court of inquiry is not normally held in public.
