HC Deb 13 March 1968 vol 760 cc291-2W
58. Mr. Corfield

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether in view of his decision not to hold a public inquiry into the crash of Iberia Airline's Caravelle near Haslemere on 4th November, 1967, he has considered making an application for the reopening of the inquest upon the victims of this disaster.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

No. The inquest proceedings are concluded. I understand the Coroner to have said that he was confining his inquiry to ascertaining the cause of death and was leaving the technical investigation to be pursued by the official inquiry. That inquiry, as the hon. Member was informed on 7th February, is being conducted by the Chief Inspector of Accidents.—[Vol. 758, c.141.]
