§ Mr. Hall Caine
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he can state the present estimated strength in first-line fighting aircraft of France, Italy, Germany, Russia, United States of America, and Great Britain; and the number of bombing machines which these countries possess?
There is, I regret, no official publication which gives the figures asked for by my hon. Friend with regard to France, Italy, Germany, Russia and the United States of America. In these circumstances it would not be in the public interest to give the information asked for in respect of this country.
