Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy. – in the House of Commons on 1st July 1942.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what steps he is taking for the provision of dive-bombers?
The naval torpedo aircraft at present in service can be used for dive-bombing. New and improved types will also be able to exploit this form of attack.
Is it not a fact that all aircraft for the Fleet Air Arm have to be ordered through the Air Ministry? Is not this undesirable? Should not the Navy now be in a position to order its own aircraft?
I do not think that arises out of this Question; but, as a matter of fact, we, like the Air Ministry, are customers of the Ministry of Aircraft Production.
