HC Deb 12 November 1952 vol 507 c67W
116. Mr. Janner

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air to what extent it has been found possible for the Royal Air Force to adopt the use of nylon rope made in this country.

Mr. Ward

Nylon rope made in the United Kingdom is used by the Royal Air Force for such things as parachute cord and target towing cable. It would be used more widely if it were not for the demands of the export drive.
