HC Deb 30 April 1947 vol 436 c245W
99. Mr. Lipson

asked the Minister of Supply on whom the financial loss resulting from the wreck of the "Warspite" falls; and if it is proposed to hold an inquiry into the circumstances which led to the disaster.

Mr. Leonard

The "Warspite" was sold by the Ministry of Supply to Metal Industries, Limited, on whom the loss will fall, except to the extent that it may be covered by insurance. As regards the second part of the Question, I understand that my right hon. Friend the Minister of, Transport is holding a preliminary inquiry.
