75. Captain ARTHUR EVANS
asked the Secretary of State for Air if he has confirmation of the statement that on 28th June the French Chamber of Deputies raised the French Air Estimates 41 from 36,120,000 to 211,920,000 francs, which will mean an increase in the French Air Force to six times its present size; whether, in view of this new situation, he considers the proposed increase in the British Air Force to be of sufficient strength; and what steps does His Majesty's Government propose to take?
§ Sir S. HOARE
I would ask the hon. and gallant Member to put down this question again for one day next week, by which time I hope I may be able to give him some information.
