Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Contracts (Supervision). (11 Feb 1942)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: Contract prices are in most cases fixed in the light of estimates by technical and accountant officers of the man-hours, labour costs, quantities and costs of materials and overhead expenses involved; subsequently, checks by accountants control progress payments. The small proportion of contracts paid for on a cost basis is subject to the same general supervision, and, in addition, the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Aeronautical Inspection Department. ( 4 Feb 1942)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: I am unable to accept my hon.

If, however, my hon. Friend will let me know what he has in mind, I will look into the matter.

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Aeronautical Inspection Department. ( 4 Feb 1942)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: I will certainly look into it. Owing to the recent weather the Aeronautical Inspection Department has had a great strain put on it, but on the whole I am very satisfied with it. I know that inspection is a tiresome thing, but it has saved many lives.

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Engine Repair Factory. ( 4 Feb 1942)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: I am aware that this factory was working below its full capacity during January, but the falling off was nothing like the extent indicated by my hon. Friend. It was due mainly to the drop in the number of engines coming forward for repair. The position at this factory is being rectified by the diversion to it of engines normally repaired by other factories where alternative work is available.

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Engine Repair Factory. ( 4 Feb 1942)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: The repair situation is always difficult, because I never know what the supply is going to be. In this particular works I am sending engines so as to keep them on full load capacity and changing the supply of engines to factories nearer London. I am sure that my hon. Friend will agree that that is the best way to deal with a difficult situation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Engine Repair Factory. ( 4 Feb 1942)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: Sometimes it is very nice to think that there are no engines to repair, but I am rather swung between the two positions—wanting to keep the workpeople busy and pleased that there are no crashes and no engines to repair. I am often in that cleft stick. I cannot guarantee that factories that mend anything will be full to capacity. On the other hand, I must keep an efficient repair unit going...

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: Apart from a minor question of the labour complement, I am not aware of anything in the factory referred to which calls for a special inquiry, but if the hon. Member will let me have particulars of what he has in mind, I will have the matter looked into.

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Midlands Factory. ( 4 Feb 1942)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: I will certainly have an investigation. I know this factory, and I am not so dissatisfied as all that. It is going through growing pains and a great deal of improvement can be effected, but on the whole it is producing a good lot of work.

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Air Transport Auxiliary (Medical Xamination). ( 4 Feb 1942)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: Medical examination is available at all the Pools of the Air Transport Auxiliary, and I have no reason to think that the present accident rate in the Service has been adversely affected by any lack of these facilities. I am, however, having the matter re-examined in the light of my hon. Friend's suggestion.

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Factory Work (Temporary Suspension) (21 Jan 1942)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: This factory is in the process of changing over from the production of one type of aircraft to another, with its attendant disturbance of labour. Technical difficulties, which are inseparable from the production of new types, also occurred during the week-end in question. Owing to these circumstances, there was insufficient work to justify the men's attendance on the Sunday. I entirely agree...

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Criticisms. (21 Jan 1942)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: I am well aware of the activities of the general manager of General Aircraft, Limited, in regard to the question of production dealt with academically.
