HC Deb 12 July 1923 vol 166 cc1569-70
63. Mr. BECKER

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the success of the air pageant at Hendon, he will consider the advisability of giving similar exhibitions on a modified scale in big industrial centres, especially in those areas from which he expects to recruit men for the Territorial Air Force?

The SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Lieut. - Colonel Sir Samuel Hoare)

There have been various difficulties in the way of giving exhibitions such as my hon. Friend suggests, but the question of sending a flight of machines round the industrial centres which are thought to be the most suitable is being considered.

Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

Will the right hon. Gentleman also arrange for some dummy attacks to be made on the big industrial centres, just to bring home to the people what they are to get in the next war?


I must ask for notice of that question.


Is it intended to have a similar exhibition in Glasgow, so that the people of Scotland can see the effects of aerial warfare?
