HC Deb 06 July 1954 vol 529 c164W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Supply how far there has been investigation into the question of damage caused by aircraft travelling at supersonic speeds; and if he will publish the findings.

Mr. Sandys

All cases of alleged damage by supersonic bangs are investigated and the information so obtained correlated. A comprehensive review of the available data on pressures created by shock waves at transonic and supersonic speeds is in progress. In this connection, we have the advantage of experience in the United States which has been made available to us. When this review has been completed, I will announce the broad conclusions reached.
