HC Deb 30 November 1938 vol 342 c417
67. Mr. Day

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he has received any reports on the performance of the aeroplanes possessed by foreign countries designed to carry small tanks; and whether experiments in this form of transportation of small tanks has been made by aircraft in Great Britain?

Sir K. Wood

Experiments in the carriage of small tanks by air were made in one foreign country some three years ago, but I regret that I am unable to give any detailed information on the matter. The experiments have not since been repeated either in that country—so far as I am aware—or elsewhere.

Mr. Day

If the Minister is aware of the foreign country in which these experiments have been made will he ask His Majesty's representative in that country to make inquiries into this matter?

Sir K. Wood

It was three years ago, but in order to satisfy the hon. Member, I will make inquiries.
