HC Deb 08 May 1924 vol 173 cc657-8W
Captain BRASS

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he can give any information with regard to the large number of fatal flying accidents in the Royal Air Force recently; and whether he proposes to take any special steps to minimise the dangers of instructional flying in the future?


I think the hon. and gallant Member will find that his questions are answered by the replies which I have recently given in the House to other hon. Members, and more particularly to the hon. Member for Rotherhithe (Mr. B. Smith) on 14th April, to the hon. Member for Lincoln (Mr. A. T. Davies) on 16th April, and the hon. and gallant Member for Hallam (Sir F. Sykes) on 29th April. I have only to add that the Air Ministry is fully alive to the great importance of using all possible means to reduce to the minimum the risk of accident during instructional and other flying.
