§ 17. Mr. Granville
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the declaration of Mr. Curtin and General MacArthur calling for a greater supply of military aircraft for the South-West Pacific theatre of war, he has a statement to make on this matter?
§ Sir A. Sinclair
No, Sir. It would not be in the public interest to make a statement on this matter at the present time.
§ Mr. Granville
In view of the recent statements in the U.S.A. and this country about record aircraft production, will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind that a holding war requires aircraft reinforcements and that we have some responsibility?
