HC Deb 22 July 1964 vol 699 c95W
Mr. Speir

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he will now publish further information regarding the fate of Major Macey and Driver Platt.

Mr. Ramsden

The United Nations Force is still actively pursuing its investigations. Following the receipt of information the search has been concentrated in and around a filled-in well in the area of Gastria. Australian police supported by soldiers of the 40th Irish Battalion have discovered pieces of metal that could be from a vehicle but it is very difficult at this stage to say precisely what the pieces are. They are being collected for analysis outside Cyprus. Meanwhile the investigations are continuing. I am sorry that this is all the positive information that I can give at present.
