HC Deb 26 February 1988 vol 128 c379W
Mr. Colvin

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he has any plans for the equipping of military transport aircraft with passenger protection smoke hoods.

Mr. Sainsbury

We at present have no plans to fit smoke hoods to transport aircraft, although we are examining them and there is a continuing programme of flight safety improvements designed to maintain the excellent safety record of the RAF air transport fleet.
