asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the procedure now in force regarding the disposal of parachutes and parachute material; and if he is satisfied that the stipulated procedure is being followed in all cases.

The procedure introduced last year for the disposal of parachute canopies hasrecently been changed. Under the new arrangements, which are now ready to operate, silk canopies will be disposed of through the silk trade. Other canopies will be distributed through the Surplus Textiles Corporation. Uncut parachute material in the piece has been disposed of like other surplus piece goods through normal trade channels.
