HC Deb 22 July 1964 vol 699 cc89-90W
61. Sir W. Duthie

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will set up an immediate court of inquiry into the sinking of the motor fishing vessel "Sirius".

Mr. Marples

I have ordered a preliminary inquiry into this casualty, under the Merchant Shipping Acts. I should like to express my sympathy with the families of the five members of the crew who lost their lives.
