HC Deb 15 November 1950 vol 480 c159W
70. Mr. Rankin

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation if he will now say when the public inquiry into the loss of the Dakota aircraft at Mill Hill will be opened.

Mr. Beswick

Present indications are that the preparatory work of collecting evidence could not be completed in time for the public hearings to be opened before the New Year. The final selection of the date rests with Mr. Roland Adams, K.C., who has accepted my noble Friend's invitation to preside.
