99. Captain BENN
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in conversations with the French Government relative to debts, he has raised the question of the expenditure on the French Air Force?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
No, Sir. A question of that character would lie beyond the special sphere of a Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that it is very hard that we should be forced to spend money on an Air Force in competition with an Air Force built with money owing to us?
§ Captain GARRO-JONES
Has the right hon. Gentleman received any reply to his Note to France of three months ago?
