HC Deb 13 March 1968 vol 760 c285W
29. Mr. Wall

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement about the progress of the official inquiries on the three lost Hull trawlers.

Mr. Crosland

The Board of Trade surveyors appointed to conduct the preliminary inquiries are at present in Iceland and are making good progress. When I have considered their reports, the Government will make arrangements for the public formal investigations which, as my hon. Friend the Minister of State has already announced, will follow.
