HC Deb 26 April 1909 vol 4 cc2-3

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the success of flying machines of foreign Powers, he can state what progress has been made in the British Army in the attempts at aerial flights?


On the introduction of Army Estimates on 4th March I fully explained what action was being taken in regard to aerial navigation, and that it was hoped that substantial progress would be made in the near future. I have nothing at present to add to the information which I gave the House on that occasion, except that progress is being made.
