HC Deb 18 February 1953 vol 511 c140W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Civil Aviation whether he can give an assurance that adequate safety precautions are being maintained by British European Airways Corporation, in view of the use of a spare set of faulty accumulators on 5th December, 1950, in the passenger Dakota G—AGHS, and other faulty equipment, details of which have been supplied to him.

Mr. Profumo

Yes. As I stated in my reply to the hon. Member on 4th February, I am satisfied that the allegations that British European Airways Corporation used faulty equipment are without foundation.
