35. Captain BALFOUR
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he can make any statement as to the result of negotiations between the Air Ministry and the Electricity Commissioners regarding the guarding of aircraft from danger of contact with overhead high-tension cables by means of lighting of pylons or some other means?
§ Mr. MONTAGUE
Meetings have taken place between representatives of the two Departments, and the technical aspects of the subject are under active consideration. A programme of experiments is being drawn up.
If I put down a question again in a month's time, will the hon. Gentleman be able to give me any more information?
Has the hon. Gentleman's attention been called to the large amount of flying over the Downs of Sussex and the great danger there is, on the testimony of pilots, owing to the existence of these pylons?
