HC Deb 03 March 1909 vol 1 cc1559-60W

asked the Prime Minister whether he will arrange either to transfer the experiments in the construction of airships from the military to the naval authorities or arrange for the naval authorities to make experiments concurrently with the military authorities?


The question of aerial navigation has occupied the attention of the Government, and provision has been made in the Navy, as well as the Army, Estimates which will ensure that the problem of the use of airships in maritime, as well as in land, warfare will be fully investigated by both the Departments concerned.
