§ 55. Mr. Hulbert
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air, how many Spitfire-type aircraft have been delivered up to date; and how many Royal Air Force squadrons will be equipped with this type by the end of 1938?
§ Lieut.-Colonel Muirhead
Delivery of this type of aircraft has not yet commenced, but it is expected that it will do so shortly. It would not be in the public interest to state how many squadrons will be equipped with it by the end of 1938.
§ Mr. Montague
Can the hon. and gallant Member state the date of the first issue of aeroplanes of this class?
