HC Deb 21 February 1940 vol 357 c1321
13. Mr. Rhys Davies asked

the Secretary of State for Air whether his attention has been called to the fact that Captain Johnson, employed by his Department on aerial surveys in the Manchester area to check the black-out, was recently fined by the local magistrates the sum of £25 for driving a motor-car when under the influence of drink and an additional fine of £5 for driving a motor-car when he was disqualified from doing so, and that he was convicted at Dundee last June for a similar offence; and whether this man is still employed by his Department?

Sir K. Wood

The individual in question is not an employéof the Air Ministry. The second part of the Question does not therefore arise.

Mr. Davies

Can the right hon. Gentleman tell me whether this man is now employed by any Government Department in any capacity?

Sir K. Wood

I understand that he is employed by a private company.
