HC Deb 15 November 1982 vol 32 cc6-7W
Mr. McQuarrie

asked the Minister for Trade if he will carry out an investigation into the circumstances under which a twin-engined Air Ecosse Bandeirante aircraft was forced to land in a barley field at Hatton in the Aberdeenshire, East constituency on Satuday 6 November; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Sproat

The incident is presently the subject of a preliminary investigation by my Department's accident investigation branch in order that the Chief Inspector of Accidents may determine whether a full inspector's investigation needs to be carried out.
