HC Deb 03 July 1935 vol 303 cc1839-40
16. Mr. COCKS

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, with regard to the statement made in April last that Germany had then reached parity with Great Britain in the air, he can give any information as to the present strength of the German air force and the number of aerodromes possessed by Germany?

The SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister)

I do not think I can usefully add to the statements which were made on this subject in the debate on the 22nd of May.


Has not the Secretary of State any information as to the present production of aircraft per day in Germany, from which a simple calculation would enable us to know how many more they have built in the last 60 days?


No, Sir. One thing of which I am quite certain is that any information that could be given would not form the basis of a simple calculation.
