HC Deb 16 February 1938 vol 331 c1878
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?
