Orders of the Day — Supply.: Number of Royal Air Force. (22 Jul 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am sure that every Member of the House must feel to-night that this is a very shameful business. I do not believe that the Prime Minister or any citizen of this country belonging to any party can fail to contemplate with horror all that is involved in this proposal. I see that in a speech which he made in 1932, discussing this subject with his usual frankness, the Prime Minister said—and...

Dr Christopher Addison: Not about bombing?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Number of Royal Air Force. (22 Jul 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: The hon. and gallant Member's speech was a little narrower than I thought. He was referring to the use of aeroplanes, which are the active and offensive part of this business. It was to the abolition of that, that the hon. and gallant Member was objecting, until we get abolition extended into other fields. If you take that line you will not get abolition in anything. I have no doubt that it...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Number of Royal Air Force. (22 Jul 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: All demands. You do not want too large a number of suppliers. That is the method which is being adopted, and in the evidence given before the Public Accounts Committee, on 14th May, by the Secretary to the Ministry it appears that the Minister is now proposing to depend for the most part, if not exclusively, on 14 or 15 firms which are included in what is known as the Society of British...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Number of Royal Air Force. (22 Jul 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I sincerely hope that in six months' time they will be satisfied that they have got them. But there are one or two other considerations to bear in mind before the Minister gets into that position. These firms, like every other firm of this type—it is their business and I am not blaming them in the lea[...]—maintain considerable overseas organisations to sell aeroplanes and aeroplane...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Number of Royal Air Force. (22 Jul 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: Do not let the hon. Member be too sure. We had some very interesting observations from the right hon. and gallant Member for the Drake division of Plymouth (Captain Guest), who spoke of the adaptability of civil aeroplanes to military purposes. I do not like it, and I am certain the country does not like it—that our money should be used to assist a monopoly group of private firms in...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Number of Royal Air Force. (22 Jul 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: The Secretary of State referred to my criticisms and justified the reasons for his not taking these powers. I am sorry that he was out of order, but I was replying to his disorderly speech. Among other disorderly things that the right hon. Gentleman did was to animadvert upon my criticism of this form of expenditure without it being spent through the media of national factories. I will return...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Number of Royal Air Force. (22 Jul 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am afraid that I am going rather beyond the licence afforded me by the irregularities of the Minister himself. I should like to say to the right hon. Gentleman one final word. [Interruption.] I am not going to apologise for taking up the time of the Committee on this matter. We are voting £5,000,000 extra now, and there will probably be many millions more to vote in the future; and when...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Number of Royal Air Force. (22 Jul 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: That was when we had the statutory powers. The fact that you have powers is often one of the best reasons for not requiring to use them.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Contracts (Control of Prices). (18 Jul 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: 40. asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the fact that formal contracts are only now beginning to issue in which a clause is inserted by which the officers of the Ministry may examine and verify the costs of production, the standards of prices previously paid for aircraft supplies are being accepted as a guide for contracts now being issued; and what steps, if any, have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Contracts (Control of Prices). (18 Jul 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: 41. asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the fact that formal contracts are only now being issued in which a clause is inserted whereby the officers of the Ministry may examine and verify the costs of production of aircraft supplies, he will state under which powers possessed by him as Minister such investigations are made, and to what extent his officers are in a position...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Contracts (Control of Prices). (18 Jul 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether, in view of the evidence recently given by the secretary of his Department before the Public Account's Committee, he is satisfied that the powers already possessed are sufficient without coming to Parliament for more powers?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Contracts (Control of Prices). (18 Jul 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: In view of the fact that the secretary himself stated before the Public Account's Committee the possibility of coming to Parliament for further powers, is it not evident that the powers the Minister now possesses are insufficient; and, while I agree that arrangements are always acceptable if they are fair, is it not the fact that the powers he already possesses are insufficient to enable him...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Contracts (Control of Prices). (18 Jul 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: 42. asked the Secretary of State for Air whether in view of the great increase in values recently recorded in the shares of companies providing aircraft supplies and of the profits made in connection with the issue of shares, he has asked any of the experts whom he has appointed to advise him on prices to make any report to him on the great economies obtained during the War in national...
