HC Deb 01 May 1968 vol 763 cc197-8W
Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on burial arrangements for the late Flying Officer M. J. Dunne, 364 Chepstow Road, Newport, who was killed in the Mediterranean area on 11th March, 1968 when flying a Royal Air Force Canberra aircraft.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

On the morning of 11th March, a Royal Air Force Canberra aircraft in which Flying Officer Dunne, and two other officers were flying, crashed into a mountain-side in Calabria in Southern Italy. The aircraft was on

force level studies. It is too early to give a considered view but they could, for example, be deployed to strengthen the N.A.T.O. flanks.
