§ 56. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether the wireless apparatus carried by aircraft, both British and foreign, and operating on the recognised air routes between England and abroad, is regularly tested upon each occasion before a flight is undertaken?
§ Mr. PARKER (for Captain Guest)
Under an arrangement made between the wireless company, who supply and maintain the apparatus, and the three approved British companies operating on the routes between England and the Continent, the reception and transmission of the installation on each machine are tested by the wireless company before every flight from this country. My right hon. Friend has no information as to the testing of the wireless apparatus on the foreign machines.
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
Could not friendly representations be made to the owners of foreign planes, as, obviously, wireless is useless, unless in perfect working order?
