HC Deb 19 June 1941 vol 372 cc834-5W
Mr. Granville

asked the Minister of Aircraft Production whether he will give details of the steps he has taken to improve the organisation for handling the arrival, assembly and modification of American aircraft in order to remove undue delays before these machines are available for operational purposes?

Mr. Montague

I do not think my hon. Friend would expect me to disclose exactly what is being done in this matter but I can assure him that there is full realisation of the importance and magnitude of this problem. My right hon. Friend has appointed to his Council Mr. Devereux whose task will be to deal with the American aircraft position in this country.
