asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has now re-examined the question of the ceremony at the funeral of three German airmen on 20th January; and if he has any further statement to make?

After looking into the matter again, I am satisfied that the three German airmen were "honourably buried" in accordance with the requirements of the Convention and that nothing was done which exceeded those requirements.
