HC Deb 23 June 1937 vol 325 c1212W
Sir M. Sueter

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he will consider bringing in regulations with the Royal Aero Club to compel pilots to turn round a pylon placed 1,000 yards from the aerodrome in all air competitions, and so avoid the steep turn on leaving the airport that caused the accident with loss of life at Hanworth on Empire day?

Lieut.-Colonel Muirhead

The accident at Hanworth is being investigated but the report of the Inspector is not yet available. Until it is, no conclusions can be arrived at, but I will see that careful consideration is given to my hon. and gallant Friend's suggestion.
