§ 55. Lieut.-Commander Fletcher
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air 1224 whether any trouble is being experienced with the experimental balloon barrages at Cardington?
§ Lieut.-Colonel Muirhead
The balloon barrage scheme, including the training of personnel at Cardington, is proceeding satisfactorily. Minor mechanical faults in the ground apparatus have been responsible for recent cases of balloons breaking away, and these faults are being rectified.
