When remedial action is beyond local resources, the matter is reported to headquarters.

Oral Answers to Questions — Air Transport Auxiliary (American Aviators). (30 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: The number of American pilots in the Air Transport Auxiliary is 162. Their contracts are for one year, but there is provision for termination at any time on notice being given in writing.

Oral Answers to Questions — Air Transport Auxiliary (American Aviators). (30 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: No, Sir. The position is that these American aviators are doing extremely valuable work at the present time. They are flying four-engined machines, two-engined machines and fast fighters, and although the figure is high, it is no higher than what they could get in America; and many of them wish to return there.

Oral Answers to Questions — Air Transport Auxiliary (American Aviators). (30 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: The first point has nothing to do with the Question, and the second point is that I have to move valuable aeroplanes about, I cannot get personnel from the Air Force —they are wanted for other matters—and I have to get the best aviators I can. This is the only way I can do it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Air Transport Auxiliary (American Aviators). (30 Jul 1941)

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Factory (Closing). (30 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: This factory is being closed down and the work transferred in stages to other premises where it can be more efficiently executed. The management of the firm so informed the workpeople, the bulk of whom will be employed at premises very close to this factory. A small number is rendered redundant by this change.

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Factory (Closing). (30 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: We took on this factory when dispersal was the order of the day and was very important. As the winter approaches we find that this particular factory suffers from flooding, that the road approaches are not good, the position of the A.R.P. shelters is not satisfactory, and also that the canteen arrangements are bad. We have another factory to which we are going to transfer this particular work.

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Factory (Closing). (30 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: There has been a lot of trouble for a long time.

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Requisitioned Hotel. (23 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: It is not correct that the hotel is being run as a catering establishment or with open bars for the supply of refreshments. It was necessary to requisition the hotel in question, partly for office accommodation and partly for use as a mess. The part of the premises used for the latter purpose serves as an extension to a pre-existing mess, and the enlarged mess has been organised under the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Requisitioned Hotel. (23 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: The answer is that is has changed and become an ordinary mess. It is not run as a hotel, nor are the general public allowed in. The whole organisation is along the ordinary lines of messes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Requisitioned Hotel. (23 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: He is not making any profit out of this. If we go on much further, we shall be giving away the position.

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Contracts (Mcclintock Agreements). (23 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: The second McLintock agreement became inoperative on 7th June, 1941, when the notice of termination expired. Virtually the first McLintock agreement has also ceased to operate, although it continues to apply where items remain to be delivered from contracts placed before the 2nd March, 1939, and will not become completely inoperative until these contracts are finally completed. Seventeen...

Oral Answers to Questions — Aircraft Production.: Contracts (Mcclintock Agreements). (23 Jul 1941)

Orders of the Day — Supply. (10 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: Is the gentleman referred to a Scotsman?

Orders of the Day — Supply. (10 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: Is that aircraft production?

Orders of the Day — Supply. (10 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: Nothing turns out as one expects. I had long resigned myself to the thought that I was to be a Back-bench Member for the rest of my life, and nothing more enjoyable than that could I imagine, but a turn of the wheel, a request from my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister, and I found myself Minister of Transport. In my dreams I had thought of myself as Minister of Transport as a sort of...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (10 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: Within half a minute. On the tank versus aeroplane question, my hon. Friend knows perfectly well what is the policy of the Government on that point. If the House of Commons were ever to persuade the Government to take a different line from that which it is following now, I should have to reconsider my position, because it would be against my conscience to make a change of policy of that kind....

Orders of the Day — Supply. (10 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: I will bear that in mind. I know that my hon. Friend bore it in mind, otherwise he could not have brought it up at all. My hon. Friend the Member for North Aberdeen (Mr. Garro Jones), who opened this Debate in a very charming way, accused us of having too many American planes in this country without the necessary ancillary equipment. The accumulation of American planes was due to the fact...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (10 Jul 1941)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: It is only lately that we have had unified effort in aircraft production in America, and one had to order the types that existed in America at the time. No doubt, when the industry gets organised, types which are not ordered will fall away, and concentration will take place, as has happened in England, upon certain basic types, and that will be more satisfactory. His Majesty's Government are...
