HC Deb 20 May 1936 vol 312 cc1188-9
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?


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.
