§ Mr. BROOKES
asked whether, in view of the possibility of further enemy air attacks on this country during the autumn, steps have been taken to complete the air defences of the country; and whether perfect coordination now exists between all branches of the two Services?
§ Major BAIRD
The development of the air defences of the country has made great progress, and is proceeding as rapidly as the manufacturing output and the needs of our forces abroad permit. In regard to the second part of the question, the hon. Member may rest assured that all possible steps are taken to secure coordination between the various branches concerned.
