§ 26. Mr. RAPER
asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to the substantial divergence of opinion between the Air Ministry and the Admiralty regarding the proved potentialities of aircraft in sinking battleships and the experiments carried out in the United States; and whether he will make a statement thereon?
It is not considered that it would be in the public interest to make a statement on this matter at present.
I am afraid that I am not sufficiently familiar with what occurred in another place, and I could not answer that question without notice.
