§ Commander BELLAIRS
asked the Secretary of State for Air how many civil air planes have been built in Great Britain and France, respectively, since the beginning of 1919?
§ Sir S. HOARE:
The information available relates only to machines entered in the British and French registers, the totals of which at the present date are respectively 817 and 1,030. Of the 817 British aeroplanes, 200 have been built since the beginning of 1919. I am not able at present to state the number of French machines built during the same period, but I am endeavouring to obtain this information, and will send it to my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as it becomes available.
