§ Sir M. Sueter
asked the Minister of Supply whether repairs to damaged optical instruments used by the Defence Services are being completed rapidly, or whether there is delay owing to a shortage of skilled instrument makers; and whether there is an adequate supply of lenses or prisms or unwrought optical glass?
§ Colonel Llewellin
Since the outbreak of war no delay has occurred in the repair of optical instruments damaged in use by the Defence Services. With regard to the last part of the question, an adequate supply of lenses, prisms and optical glass is available for present use.
