§ 12. Mr. ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what proportion of lubricating oil used by the Royal Air Force during the last year came from Russia?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
The proportion of Russian oil in the lubricating oil for aero engines used last year may be taken as about 50 per cent.
§ Mr. ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
In view of the danger of being dependent on any foreign country, is my right hon. Friend not taking steps to increase the proportion that is obtained in this country?
§ Mr. CHORLTON
May I ask my right hon. Friend if all this oil cannot be obtained from sources within the British Empire?
