HC Deb 28 January 1959 vol 598 cc1047-8
16. Mr. Strachey

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether the trouble with the tail of the Victor bomber, reported last August, has now been cleared up and all restrictions removed from the flying of this aircraft.

Mr. Ward

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Strachey

May we be assured that this very important weapon in our home defence forces is now satisfactory for the rÔle for which it was designed?

Mr. Ward

I can give that assurance.

Sir J. Duncan

While complimenting my right hon. Friend on the fact that the trouble with this aircraft has been cleared up, may I ask him whether he does agree that the trouble with the tail of the Labour Party is still chronic?
