§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Mr. Montague)
Parachutes have been provided on a scale sufficient to equip every pilot and member of the crews of all aircraft. As has been previously stated, there have been difficulties in the carriage or use of parachutes with certain types of aircraft, but these difficulties are in process of being surmounted.
§ Mr. MONTAGUE
Quick release gear experiments have been developed, and that is included in the remark with regard to surmounting difficulties. Great progress has been made.
