HC Deb 03 April 1919 vol 114 c1387
84. Mr. RAPER

asked the Under-Secretary of State to the Air Ministry where the Director-General of Supply and Research acquired the necessary business and technical experience to qualify him for this post?


The Director General of Supply and Research is an officer who rendered brilliant war service in the Army and in the Air Force, and was for a considerable period Controller-General of Equipment in the Air Ministry. I am satisfied that he is well qualified for the appointment which he holds.
