HC Deb 06 May 1931 vol 252 cc377-8
17. Commander SOUTHBY

(for Mr. ROSS) asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the recent trials of new types of propulsion machinery in His Majesty's Ship "Acheron" were successful?


The answer is in the affirmative.

Commander SOUTHBY

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether any difficulty has been experienced with the metal for the turbine blades of vessels fitted with this new type of machinery?


If the hon. and gallant Member wishes for information on technical details he ought to give me private notice, but the experiments so far carried out have given satisfaction.
