§ 45. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
asked the Prime Minister which Department of State has been responsible for the production of military aircraft since November, 1951.
§ The Ministry of Supply.
§ Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
As the Department has been so successful that we have now in some respect or the other the best defence in the world, why was it necessary to move the former Minister of Supply to a more sheltered spot and to produce a new Minister of self-defence to explain away the Government's magnificent record in this field?
