HC Deb 04 October 1944 vol 403 cc912-3
19. Mr. John Duǵdale

asked the Minister of Aircraft Production why his Ministry acceded to the request for a number of aeroplanes to be sent to Lady Dudley's fête recently, when similar requests for the loan of aircraft for exhibition were refused.

The Minister of Aircraft Production (Sir Stafford Cripps)

No request was received by my Ministry from Lady Dudley's fête, and no aircraft were sent there.

Mr. Duǵdale

If they were not sent by the right hon. and learned Gentleman's Ministry, will he inquire from the Ministry of Supply whether they were sent from there?

Sir S. Cripps

I think the hon. Gentleman had better make inquiries from Lady Dudley.

Mr. Duǵdale

They were certainly sent there.
