Surgeon Lieut. - Commander Bennett:
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what progress is being made in the development of a standard technique and practice of deck landing in British and American aircraft carriers.
Surgeon Lieut.-Commander Bennett:
In view of the considerable disparity of landing-on rates and accident rates under this technique between British and American carriers, can the Parliamentary Secretary give an assurance that any modifications needed for the standardisation to be made a success in this country will be done by modifications of aircraft rather than of technique?
