HC Deb 20 October 1982 vol 29 c163W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Defence (1)whether he will redesignate the Air Ministry headquarters in Whitehall as Douglas Bader House, or name some other prominent Royal Air Force building or establishment after the late Sir Douglas Bader;

(2) whether he will consider initiating some form of permanent national memorial to the late Sir Douglas Bader or contribute to a memorial fund to be established by an organisation outside the control of his Department; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Wiggin

No, but consideration is being given to the concept of perpetuating the name of Sir Douglas Bader in a suitable way.
