HC Deb 08 September 1942 vol 383 c66W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether the Air Ministry have ordered a court of inquiry into the accident to the Sunderland aircraft conveying His late Royal Highness the Duke of Kent, on passage to Iceland; and whether, in view of all the circumstances, the composition of the crew, the weather conditions and time of day, he will undertake to publish the findings and thus allay public anxiety on the grounds that proper care was not exercised?

Sir A. Sinclair
