asked the Secretary of State for Air the number of foreign-owned passenger-carrying aeroplanes trading between their own country and England which carry only a single pilot; what number are not yet fitted with wireless; and whether he can give approximate dates on which these essential improvements are to be remedied?

The answer to the first question is 71 aeroplanes, of which 10 will eventually be replaced by aeroplanes fitted with dual control capable of carrying two pilots; to the second 65; to the third, that it is expected that all these aeroplanes will be fitted with wireless apparatus within the next three months.
