HC Deb 22 July 1935 vol 304 cc1478-9
35. Mr. SANDYS

asked the Secretary of State for Air what progress has been made in the evolving of an unburstable petrol tank for aeroplanes?


The position generally remains as stated in the reply given to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Handsworth (Commander Locker-Lampson) on the 6th June, 1935. A number of tanks of a new type are about to be ordered for trial, but I cannot at present make any statement as to the likelihood of its adoption for service use.
