§ Mr. S. C. Silkin
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will make a statement concerning the tragedy in consequence of which three school boys of Dulwich College lost their lives on Mount Snowdon.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
Everybody will be deeply distressed about this tragedy. Dulwich College, which organised the walking party, is an independent school. An inquest is to be held. I cannot therefore comment further except to express my sympathy with the parents of the boys and with the teachers and authorities of the school.
