§ Colonel DAY
asked the Secretary of State for Air the result of the tests of the new type of self-propelled parachute, 2936W by Lieut. Freri, of the Italian Air Force, at Stag Lane Aerodrome?
§ Sir S. HOARE
The trials of the new Italian parachute at Stag Lane were a private demonstration, in the course of which a successful descent was made from 1,200 feet by Lieut. Freri. Representatives of the Air Ministry attended by invitation, and the result of the test was considered to be sufficiently satisfactory to warrant further experiments.
