§ 88. Mr. Skeffington
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how many accidents there have been in the last ten years involving naval aircraft landing or taking off from civil airports; and how many other accidents involving naval aircraft there have been in the same period.
§ Mr. Soames
There have been four accidents involving naval aircraft landing or taking off at civil airports in the last ten years. It would not be in the public interest to disclose the figures requested in the second part of the Question. It can, however, be stated that the naval accident rate has shown a steady and continuous decline over the last ten years.
