§ Lieut.-Colonel MOORE-BRABAZON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether any fighting squadrons of the Royal Air Force intended for overland operations, as distinct from those intended for the Fleet air arm and apart from squadrons equipped for troop transport purposes, have been equipped throughout with aeroplanes and engines which have been designed or produced since the Armistice in 1918; and, if so, the types of aeroplanes and engines which have been allocated to those squadrons?56W
§ Mr. LEACH
The answer to the first part of the question is that, certain of the squadrons specified by the hon. and gallant Member have been supplied with aeroplanes and engines designed since 1918, and arrangements are being made to increase their number. It would not be in accordance with the usual practice to publish the partculars asked for in the second part of the queston.
