HC Deb 23 October 1961 vol 646 c22W
Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Aviation what facts he elicited from his fact-finding tour to Norway in relation to air safety.

Mr. Thorneycroft

I flew to Norway to acquaint myself personally with the topography of the Stavanger area and the operational techniques involved in landing at Sola airport. My purpose was to enable me fully to understand the final accident report of the Norwegian authorities.
