§ Mr. DAY
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the preliminary trials of the rotating loop direction-finding system investigated by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research have proved satisfactory; whether he can now state if it has been decided by his Department, in conjunction with the Air Ministry and Trinity House, to establish an experimental station of this type, and, if so, where this station will be established?
§ Mr. H. WILLIAMS
As the result of the preliminary trials of the rotating loop system (a report on which, I understand, will be published shortly by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research), it is proposed to erect an experimental station at Orfordness for air and marine navigation which can be tried under service conditions. The arrangements are not yet completed, but I will let the hon. Member know as soon as a definite decision is arrived at.
