§ 34. Mr. Donner
asked the Secretary of State for Air to what extent it is proposed to increase the number of the night fighter squadrons.
§ Mr. A. Henderson
As I stated in my speech on the Air Estimates this year, we are planning, not only to re-equip our night fighter squadrons with the latest types of jet night fighter aircraft, commencing next year, but also to increase the size of the night fighter force. This expansion, which will be very substantial, has already commenced, but it would not be in the public interest to give numbers.
