Mr. Speaker, I very much
regret to inform the house that word has been received1 that an aircraft in which Commander Brabner and other senior Air Ministry officials were coming to Canada is reported as missing and must be presumed to have been lost.

The government of Canada extends its .very deep sympathy to the families of those who are missing.
