§ 19. Wing Commander Bullus
asked the Minister of Supply what encouragement he is giving to work on the technique known as boundary layer control for aircraft now under development by a British aircraft company.
§ The Minister of Supply (Mr. Aubrey Jones)
In addition to research work, mainly at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, I am financing work in industry and am examining with aircraft operators the possible advantages of this technique.
§ Wing Commander Bullus
Is my right hon. Friend satisfied that we are maintaining our long lead in this very important field? Should we not press ahead with intensive research?
