§ 34. Mr. E. Smith
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he has considered the proposal of the city of Stoke-on-Trent Education Committee to perpetuate the memory of Reginald Joseph Mitchell, the designer of the Spitfire aircraft; and will he consult the Air Ministry, the Ministry of Aircraft Production, the aircraft industry and other interested people, in order that the proposal can be carried out in a form commensurate with the service rendered by Mr. Mitchell's life's work?
§ The President of the Board of Education (Mr. Ramsbotham)
I understand that a committee under the chairmanship of the Lord Mayor of Stoke-on-Trent has been formed to consider the establishment of a memorial to the late R. J. Mitchell, but I have no information regarding any decision the committee may have reached.
