HC Deb 29 October 1919 vol 120 c707W

asked the Under-Secretary of State to the Air Ministry what steps, if any, have been taken to use the experience obtained during the War in aerial photography for snapping purposes towards revising and helping in ordnance survey work in England, in view of the fact that so many maps are now out of date?

Major-General SEELY

As my hon. and gallant Friend is aware, the Board of Agriculture is responsible for Ordnance Survey Maps. A Committee, with representatives of the War Office, Admiralty, and Air Ministry have been considering the general question of maps, including those specially required for air purposes, for which, undoubtedly, aerial photography will be of the greatest value.
