§ Mr. BILLING
asked who is responsible for deciding designs, type, and factors of safety for the Royal Naval Air Service aeroplanes operating with our Army in France; who is responsible for decidng the design, type, and factors of safety of the Royal Flying Corps' aeroplanes operating with our Army in France; are these requirements identical: and, if not, why not?
§ Major BAIRD
The responsibility for the design of aeroplanes for the use of the Royal Naval Air Service and the Royal Flying Corps, which was formerly vested in the Director of Air Services and the Director-General of Military Aeronautics respectively, is now vested in the Air Board for both services. The requirements of the Royal Naval Air Service and the Royal Flying Corps are not necessarily the same.
