asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he is now in a position to make a full statement on the causes of the various Comet crashes.

No. There is nothing to add to my statement of 31st May last, in respect of the Comet accidents at Rome, Calcutta and Karachi. The causes of the disasters near Elba and Naples will, as my hon. Friend knows, be the subject of public inquiries.
