What form of inquiry they propose to establish to investigate the accident to the tanker "Sea Empress" off Milford Haven.

My Lords, in view of the fact that at a convenient moment after 3.30 p.m. my noble friend Lord Goschen will, with the leave of the House, repeat a Statement that is to be made in another place on the "Sea Empress", I suggest that that will provide an opportunity for a full Answer to be given to the noble Lord's Question. I understand that the noble Lord is content to wait until then. I hope that that course of action will meet with the approval of the whole House.
