HC Deb 01 November 1944 vol 404 c780
17. Sir Oliver Simmonds

asked the Secretary of State for Air the type of aircraft in which the Prime Minister recently flew to Moscow and the nationality of the crew.

Sir A. Sinclair

The aircraft employed was an Avro. York, manned by a British crew.

Sir O. Simmonds

Will my right hon. Friend see that in all future important journeys of this kind, British aircraft are used wherever possible, in view of the great advantages from many points of view?

Sir A. Sinclair

That is certainly our policy, Mr. Speaker.
