asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he can give details as to the experimental Royal Air Force torpedo school at Gosport and as to the work carried on there."

Captain GUEST:

The Air Force establishment referred to at Gosport is not a torpedo training school: it is a flight maintained for experiments with the running of torpedoes from aircraft and for the study of modifications to aircraft fittings and to torpedoes in connection with such work. In this work the Naval Torpedo School, described as H.M.S. "Vernon," closely co-operate. The flight consists of three machines, with an establishment of 4 officers, one of whom is attached from the Navy, 18 other ranks, and 3 civilian assistants.
