§ Mr. BILLING
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the building policy of the Director-General of Military Aeronautics is being persisted in as to types and numbers; whether he is still responsible for deciding as to type3 and numbers; and, if not, for what reason has he been relieved of these duties?
§ Major BAIRD
The responsibility for the design and supply of aeroplanes for the use of the Royal Flying Corps (Military Wing) ceased to be vested in the Director-General of Military Aeronautics on the establishment of the present arrangements whereby a joint system of design and supply for both the naval and military branches of the Air Service has been established under the Air Board, of which Sir David Henderson is a member, and the Ministry of Munitions.
