HC Deb 05 June 1940 vol 361 c858W
Commander Locker-Lampson

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Aircraft Production whether he is aware that Mr. Ford's factory is able to build 1,000 aeroplanes a week; and whether British experts are in touch with American authorities on this subject?

Colonel Llewellin

I have seen a Press cutting to the effect that Mr. Ford has been reported as stating that his company could produce 1,000 aircraft a day within six months, and we have already instructed our representatives in the United States to investigate to the full any proposition which Mr. Ford has to make.
