HC Deb 22 March 1917 vol 91 c2077W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the chairman of the Air Board has had the opportunity of reading the recommendations of Mr. Charles Bright contained in the Air Committee's Report on the administration and command of the Royal Flying Corps; whether he has availed himself of this opportunity; if so, whether he has adopted any of the suggestions contained therein: and whether he has called in the assistance of Mr. Charles Bright to elaborate any recommendations he made in that Report?


My Noble Friend has had the advantage of acquainting himself with the recommendations referred to. The recent changes in the organisation of design and supply of aircraft for the Naval and Military Services to a great extent coincide with some of those recommendations, and it is possible that future action will be taken which will be in accordance with others. Mr. Bright's recommendations are very clearly stated in the Report, and the need for their elaboration has not arisen.
