asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he will state in official Royal Air Force bulletins the number of Polish and other Allied aeroplanes which are missing, in view of the fact that in the case of Polish aeroplanes the number is given in the Polish daily newspapers printed in London?

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for the Wirral Division of Chester (Captain Graham) on 21st April, of which I am sending him a copy. I understand that the only Polish daily newspaper printed in this country does not give detailed figures of Polish aircraft losses, nor does it publish any information about casualties immediately after the operations in which they have been incurred.
