asked the Minister of State whether he will make arrangements whereby in provincial towns in Northern Ireland, where labour is available, the manufacture of certain aircraft parts and munitions of war should be made possible in order to speed up, and increase, the output of much-needed aeroplanes and war requisites?
My right hon. Friend the Minister of Aircraft Production, who, in the absence of the Minister of Production, has been asked to reply, is at this moment seeing the Minister of Commerce, Northern Ireland, on this very matter. My right hon. Friend the Minister of Production proposes similarly to see Sir Basil Brooke shortly.
