HC Deb 24 July 1946 vol 426 c4W
25. Mr. Proctor

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation if he has any statement to make regarding the safety of the U.S. produced aircraft purchased for use by B.O.A.C.

Mr. Ivor Thomas

As I informed the Hon. and gallant Member for South Blackpool (Wing-Commander Robinson) on 17th July last, an investigation is proceeding in America with regard to the cause of the recent accident which resulted in the temporary grounding of the Constellation aircraft. Until this report is received I am unable to make a statement.
