HC Deb 15 May 1918 vol 106 c362
67. Mr. G. TERRELL

asked the Undersecretary of State to the Air Ministry whether, in view of the precedent that the Government have now offered a substantial monetary reward for inventions regarding oil fuel, he can see his way to recommend that suitable rewards be offered to inventors who can devise methods of locating enemy aeroplanes at night?


The secrecy involved in such an inquiry precludes any open competition of this nature, but the existing system of rewards can be applied in the case of any successful invention of this kind forwarded through the Air Inventions Committee, 2, Clement's Inn.
