asked the President of the Board of Trade how many Dakota aircraft have been sold to Russia since he removed them from the strategic list published last October.
Is the right hon. Gentleman surprised at that? Did he notice that last weekend the TU 114 flew from Moscow to New York in 11 hours, a distance of nearly 5,000 miles?
