§ 43. Captain PLUGGE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether the attention of his Department has been called to the performances of Mr. Clem Sohn, who uses a special wing equipment of his own for the purposes of controlled descent from aeroplanes; and whether he will investigate the possibilities of this apparatus for practical use in war time?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, I am advised that the apparatus referred to is not considered suitable for service purposes.
