– in the House of Commons on 30th July 1942.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider
transferring both the command and the effective operational control of Army Cooperation Command to the Army?
The Army already exercises effective operational control over the squadrons in Army Co-operation Command. My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister does not consider that any change in the present system of command is necessary.
Is it not a fact that I received a reply to a Question that Army Co-operation Command is under the command of an Air Force officer?
That is quite true. The hon. and gallant Gentleman asked me a Question, and I gave the reply referred to.
How can the effective operational control of the Army Cooperation Command be in the hands of the Army if it is commanded by an Air Force officer?
It is under his operational control.
