Gentlemen opposite (Major-General Seely) to see whether he could make out a better case than the hon. and gallant Member for Leith (Captain W.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Pay, etc., of the Air Force. (15 Dec 1919)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: I am glad to hear that. We must remember that in the heart of the Air Force there is always a fear, being a young Force and not being established very long as a separate service, that we are always trying to be taken over by the Army or the Navy, and with the present arrangement we have got to remember that the first business, so to speak, of the Air Ministry is to make the Army efficient by...

That is a thing which has changed...
