Is it not the case that in the first three months of this year 16 civil aircraft were destroyed with a loss of 360 passengers? Has the hon.. Gentle-man no information about these figures, which have: been published? If they are correct, are they disturbing him as seriously as they disturb all those who are interested in the progress of civil aviation? Is there any committee within the International Civil Aviation Organisation which inquires into these things from the point of view of the control system in airfields outside Great Britain?
The information is as follows:
