HC Deb 08 July 1915 vol 73 c522
20. Mr. LYNCH

asked the Minister of Munitions whether he will cause to be prepared in compact form, for the convenience of Members, the texts of all the Orders in Council which have served to define the scope of his functions; and whether he, or any director of any Department of his office, has occupied himself with the question of aeroplanes since the establishment of the Ministry of Munitions?


The only Order in Council so far issued defining the functions of the Minister of Munitions is the Ministry of Munitions Order, 1915, copies of which are obtainable in the ordinary way. While the supply of aeroplanes has not been taken over by the Ministry of Munitions, the services of war munitions volunteers enrolled by the Minister are available to meet the needs of any aircraft factories on the same conditions as other munition works.
