§ 62. Mr. Montague
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air how many aeroplanes, commercial, private, and military, were forced down in the built-up area of London in 1937?
§ Lieut.-Colonel Muirhead
I do not know what precise area the hon. Member has in mind. The Air Ministry records show that taking an approximate 10-mile radius from Charing Cross, three Service aircraft forced-landed at Hendon, New Maiden and Edmonton respectively and two civil aircraft at Bromley Hill and Hounslow respectively.
§ Mr. Montague
Is the Minister aware that these three are two more than the number stated in the last answer which he gave me, less than a week ago?
