§ 28. Mr. Donner
asked the Minister of Supply whether in view of present and potential needs, it is now proposed to increase the production of transport planes.
§ The Minister of Supply (Mr. G. R. Strauss)
No, Sir; but the matter is being kept under continuous review by my right hon. and learned Friend the Secretary of State for Air and myself.
§ Mr. Donner
In view of the reference in "The Times" today to the lack of air transport room from Singapore, can the Minister give an assurance that our present numbers are adequate to our expanding needs?
§ Mr. Strauss
The requirements for transport planes or any other type of plane are a matter for the Secretary of State for Air, who is primarily responsible.
