HC Deb 05 June 1940 vol 361 cc827-8
5. Mr. Woodburn

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is satisfied that all aerodromes in this country and other possible mass landing grounds for troop-carrying planes are protected in force against all eventualities?

Sir A. Sinclair

The great importance of this question is fully recognised and defensive preparations are being pressed forward.

Mr. Woodburn

Will the Minister undertake to see that this is urgently pressed forward in view of the fact that there has been so much procrastination in the past and the public are uneasy about the future?

Sir A. Sinclair

I can assure the hon. Member that that is now being done.
