HC Deb 30 October 1918 vol 110 c1490W

asked the Under-Secretary of State to the Air Ministry what progress has been made in the proposed application of parachutes to aeroplanes for the purpose of saving life; whether it has been decided to sanction their use for aeroplanes at the front; and whether any will be allotted to training machines in this country?


Sufficient progress with experimental parachutes for use for aeroplanes has been made to justify their provision for certain types of machines. The policy is to provide them first for machines in use in France.
