HC Deb 27 April 1938 vol 335 cc114-5
17. Mr. Day

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster to which countries the Government have appointed, or are considering appointing, Air Attaches in a similar manner to that in which attaches have been appointed for other services?

The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Earl Winterton)

A list of the countries to which Air Attaches are accredited will he found on page 71 of the current Air Force List, a copy of which is in the Library. The question of the desirability of further appointments is kept under review.

Mr. Day

Does that mean that there are many countries that have not got Air Attaches?

Earl Winterton

It is not out of want of courtesy to the hon. Gentleman that I have not given the information to him now, but because it would be too lengthy to be given in answer to an oral question. Perhaps he will be good enough to look into the book to which I have referred him.
